ISLAMABAD: NAB court judge Arshad Malik today rejected PML-N leader Maryam Nawaz allegations regarding victimizing Nawaz Sharif in bogus corruption cases.
According to the Judge Arshad Malik press release, termed the leaked video played by PML-N leaders during their press conference fake, fabricated and out of context.
The judge said that no one pressurized me to deliver verdict against Nawaz Sharif in Al-Azizia reference and that the decision announced while fulfilling all the requirements of justice.
“I should have not acquitted Nawaz Sharif in one case and sentenced him in another case if I was under pressure,” said Arshad Malik.
Arshad Malik told that he had old relation with Nasir Butt, the person shown talking to him in the alleged video, and his brother Abdullah Butt who used to often meet me.
He claimed that the PML-N representatives also threatened me with dire consequences if I rejected to fulfill their “demands”.
“I had then left my case to Almighty and chosen to stick to the truth,” NAB court Judge said.
He added that PML-N conducted press conference to make my decisions controversial so that they can gain political benefits.
Arshad Malik further demanded the authorities to take legal action against those involved in this conspiracy.
