ISLAMABAD    -  Pakistan Mus­lim League- Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz said Thursday that her hus­band and Captain (re­tired) Safdar’s acquit­tal in the Avenfield case had not only exposed Imran Khan’s fake accountability narrative, but also vindicated Nawaz Sharif from base­less and unfounded allegations of corruption.

While talking to reporters outside Islamabad High Court (IHC), she thanked her counsel advocates Am­jad Pervez and Salman Akram Raja for vigorously pur­suing the case. 

“The Allah Almighty has exonerated PML-N supre­mo Muhammad Nawaz Sharif family from baseless and fake allegations leveled against them. Soon Nawaz Sharif will arrive in country,” she added. Maryam Nawaz also lauded the IHC’s verdict.

Lashing out at Imran Khan, she said the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman was a liar, conspirator and traitor. “He will have to answer for his misleading propaganda and allegations. History will seek answer from him for sullying a respectable family,” she added. 

She said Imran Khan was imposed on the country under a well hatched conspiracy to oust Nawaz Sharif as it was difficult for the former to become prime min­ister of the country in the presence of latter. 

“Nawaz family has remained steadfast in facing un­founded allegations against him and his family for six years and eventually Allah Almighty exonerat­ed them,” she said. She said her father had decided to face Panama cases despite the fact that his friends and well-wishers foretold him about his likely pun­ishment. She said Imran hatched conspiracy to sab­otage deal with International Monetary Fund (IMF), attempted to divide Armed Forces and tried to make Election commission of Pakistan (ECP) controversial.

The PML-N vice president demanded constitution of a high powered probe committee to probe into conspira­cies hatch by Imran Khan, and also called for his arrest at the earliest. Referring to Imran and his principal secre­tary’s audio leak, she said Imran was heard in the leaked audio as saying that “let’s play with the cipher.” The bu­reaucrat then told Imran how to use the conspiracy card to fool the people, she added. “Imran must be punished for playing with the country’s national interest and se­curity. Perhaps, he was treating the country as Lahore’s Gaddafi Stadium,” she remarked sarcastically.
