Imran always insulted judiciary: Marriyum

ISLAMABAD (APP): Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb has said that Imran Khan had always insulted the judiciary and never followed the law.

She said that there were allegations of corruption against Imran Khan and his arrest by the NAB was in accordance with the law and the government had nothing to do with it. To a question, the federal information minister said that the government did not believe in political revenge and victimization. “If we wanted to arrest him or silence him … we would not have waited 14 months,” she said.
In response to the question regarding the disqualification of Imran Khan, the minister said why would the government want to disqualify him. Why would any democratic government do this, she remarked. However, she said Imran Khan during his tenure arrested political leaders, put them in jails and tried to silence their voices.
To another question, Marriyum Aurangzeb said that after the issuance of a court order, it was his constitutional right to review or discuss the order. To another question, the minister said that no peaceful citizen was on the streets during the last three days, only armed groups and terrorists were taken to streets who damaged state and public property.
Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb also rebutted news regarding the imposition of “emergency” in the country. “The reports circulating in the media regarding the imposition of emergency in the country are baseless” and no such decision was taken in the meeting of the Federal Cabinet, the minister said in a news statement. She urged the media to verify the facts before airing or publishing any news.
