Vowing to bring former president Pervez Musharraf to the court soon, former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Friday said, “The time has come for those who violated the Constitution to be punished”.
While speaking to PML-N workers and leaders following the Friday congregation, Sharif said: “The courts will have to be awakened on Musharraf’s cases.”
Sharif, whose second term as the prime minister ended as a result of the then army chief Musharraf’s coup in October 1999, said that the former president is a “coward” and is making excuses to stay abroad. “If he is so brave, he should come to Pakistan and face the cases.”
Earlier this week, for the first time since Nawaz’s disqualification at the hands of Supreme Court, the Sharif family publicly said that initiation of a treason case against Musharraf by the PML-N government was the reason behind his ouster.
