ABBOTTABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairperson Imran Khan continued on Sunday his tirade against the Sharif family and remarked that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s son-in-law Captain (retd) Safdar is courting arrest as if he conquered Kashmir.
While addressing a party rally in Abbottabad, Imran said that Safdar has been convicted in corruption charges.
The National Accountability Bureau team arrested on Sunday former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s son-in-law Captain (retd) Muhammad Safdar in relation to Avenfield properties reference case.
Safdar, along with wife Maryam and father-in-law Nawaz Sharif, was given on Friday jail term in the Avenfield properties case. Nawaz and Maryam were sentenced to 11 and eight years in prison and slapped £8-million and £2-million fines, respectively. Capt (retd) Safdar also received a one-year prison sentence.
“I have heard the father and daughter duo are returning on Friday,” Imran said while referring to Nawaz and his daughter Maryam Nawaz’s decision to return to country. “They are most welcome to return but Nawaz for the sake of God don’t try to portray yourself as Nelson Mandela.”
Mandela, an anti-apartheid revolutionary who served as South Africa’s president, worked for the benefit of his nation, Imran said claiming that Nawaz, on the other hand, only plundered the country and gave that money to his children.
