Nawaz Sharif, Maryam to leave for London tomorrow

Posted April 18, 2018

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif on today (Apr. 17) said the court should make clear what "anti-judiciary" means, adding that everyone has the right to dissent.

Former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said on Tuesday that the world has changed and the time was ripe for the Pakistanis to change as well.

The court instructed PEMRA to decide on all complaints regarding the broadcast of anti-judiciary remarks by Sharif and his daughter within 15 days, and to ensure that such content is not broadcast by anyone.

The petitioners submitted that Sharif and his daughter had been severely criticizing the judiciary in their public speeches.
