Lahore : Captain (Retd) Muhammad Safdar on Saturday said Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Sharif Family were striving to guard and protect the 1973 Constitution since they were fully abiding by orders of the apex court.
Talking to media after appearing before the Panama Papers case Joint investigation Team (JIT), he said that its conduct was appropriate and he had responded to the questions asked by the JIT. “The Panama case is not only against Nawaz Sharif but also against a prime minister who made the country a nuclear power,” he said.
Captain (Retd) Safdar said he would not disclose what took place during JIT proceedings as the matter was pending before the court. “Panama case is not against Nawaz Sharif – it is against a person who made Pakistan a nuclear power; the one who made motorways and took Pakistan away from darkness,” he added.
Capt (Retd) Safdar said he was treated in an appropriate manner by members of the JIT. He asked why no one was questioning the people who had Surrey palaces. He also called upon Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan to beware of conspiracies against the country and distance from such moves and tactics. Otherwise, history will remember him in a negative manner, he said.
Captain (retd) Safdar said the Panama Paper Leaks was not the accountability of Nawaz Sharif, rather an affront on two-nation theory.
