Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PMLN) Senior Vice President Maryam Nawaz will address a crucial public rally today in which she will expose the alleged audio tapes of three senior judges, claimed journalist Javed Chaudhry.
In a recent vlog on his YouTube channel, Javed Chaudhry said that Maryam will play the audio of three judges in a public rally scheduled to be held today.
The journalist said that it is expected that the audio of Chief Justice of Pakistan Umar Ata Bandial will also be played during the rally. He added that audio leaks will open a new Pandora’s box, and the move will further intensify the division among judges.
He said that the audio tapes will jolt many and have a great impact on the politics of the country.
The journalist said that PMLN has not yet sought permission from the party’s supremo, Nawaz Sharif. He added that Maryam would not expose the audio tapes if Nawaz forbade her from doing so.
On February 23, Maryam Nawaz criticized two sitting judges of the Supreme Court, listing them as members of a “cabal of five” who conspired against her father, former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
Addressing a public rally in Sargodha, she put up a video screen showing pictures of the five people she held responsible, saying: “The people of Sargodha should also see the ones behind the conspiracy.”
The pictures included ex-Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) chief Lt Gen (retd) Faiz Hameed, former chief justices Asif Khosa and Saqib Nisar, and two sitting Supreme Court judges: Justice Ijazul Ahsan and Justice Sayyed Mazahar Ali Akbar Naqvi, who are currently part of a top court bench hearing a suo motu case to determine who has the constitutional responsibility and authority to announce the date for elections in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
One of the two serving judges shown on the screen, Maryam said, was part of the bench that disqualified Nawaz in the Panama Papers case. “He is dreaming of becoming the chief justice. It has been five to six years since Nawaz was disqualified, but he is still sitting as a judge in every case against Nawaz,” said Maryam Nawaz.
She alleged ex-spy chief Faiz Hameed is “still sitting somewhere and operating” behind the scenes.
Maryam Nawaz also played the audio, purportedly featuring former Punjab chief minister Elahi and one of the top court judges.
