Islamabad: Former Chief Justice of Pakistan (JCP) Saqib Nisar had pressured a High Court judge to keep Pakistan’s former Prime Minister and his daughter Maryam Nawaz in jail and said that before the 2018 general elections, Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz should not come out of jail. This has been printed in the reports published in Pakistani media. According to reports, Rana M Shamim, a former senior judge of the High Court of Gilgit-Baltistan, an Indian territory occupied by Pakistan, has said this in one of his affidavits.

According to reports, in his affidavit placed before the Oath Commissioner, Judge Shamim said that when the Chief Justice of Pakistan had come to Gilgit-Baltistan to visit and he was telling a judge of the High Court of Pakistan Punjab on the phone that Nawaz Sharif and Maryam In any case, Nawaz should not come out of jail before the general election of 25 July 2018.

Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz were found guilty by a lower court on charges of corruption, but their lawyer filed a petition in the High Court against the order of the lower court, which was given at the end of July for hearing, i.e. July 25. was given a post-election date.

This report, which appeared in the media of Pakistan, shows how corrupt the judicial process is there. The big question also becomes that on whose behest the Chief Justice of Pakistan had ordered the judge that Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz should not come out of jail. In the general elections held in 2018, Imran Khan’s party got the maximum number of seats but it was far away from the majority. There were allegations that Pakistan’s army had put in full force to make Imran Khan’s party win and Nawaz Sharif’s party defeated. That is, it is clear that only on the behest of Pakistan’s army, the Chief Justice of Pakistan had ordered to keep Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz in jail.
