Decision to disqualify me had already been made: Nawaz Sharif

Former PM Nawaz Sharif said on Tuesday that the judge appointed by the top court to monitor National Accountability Bureau (NAB) proceedings against him would not just decide cases as per his wishes but also listen to appeals against his own verdicts.

In its judgment on July 28, the top court besides disqualifying prime minister Nawaz Sharif had ordered country's graft-buster to file references against Nawaz Sharif, Hassan Nawaz, Hussain Nawaz, Maryam Nawaz, Ishaq Dar, Captain Safdar and others.

On August 2, the Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar had assigned the task to Justice Ijaz Ul Ahsan. "One judge even said that "prime minister should know that there is a lot of space in Adiala jail", he said, adding that it does not behove a judge to make such remarks."I will not run away like Musharraf", he claimed, and asked whether there were any judges in the country who could hold the dictator accountable."Is there any court which can hold former dictators responsible for crimes like breaking up the country?" he questioned.

In an informal chat with a group of journalists at Punjab House, the former prime minister wondered if the people's mandate will ever be respected.

He pointed out that Pakistan had never gone to war during the tenure of democratic governments, which had sought to resolve issue through talks instead.

He added that the atrocities against the people of Indian-occupied Kashmir at the hands of the Indian forces must stop.
