Lawyer says laws bended to benefit a convict
PESHAWAR: Senior lawyer and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Qazi Muhammad Anwar on Wednesday said that the country’s laws and constitution were bended last week to provide relief to a convicted criminal.
Speaking at a press conference along with another lawyer Muazzam Butt and other lawyers, he said that a convicted criminal, who should have been punished for his deeds, was being cleared to pave way for bringing him to power.
He said that being a lawyer he was disheartened by the distortion of the current situation. The senior lawyer said that on the one hand, a convict was provided maximum relief while on the other hand a popular leader was being jailed unfairly.
He said the country should be run in light of the constitution.The senior lawyer said that he condemned what had been done to Nawaz Sharif in the past and the current unjust treatment with PTI chairman Imran Khan.
