Nawaz was escorted to the Rawal Lounge by the Airport Security Forces [ASF] officials where a National Accountability Bureau [NAB] team, under the chairmanship of Investigating Officer Mehboob Alam, ensured implementation of the NAB summons against the former prime minister.
After signing the documents, Nawaz headed to Punjab House with his party leaders and workers to discuss the political scenario.
Speaking to the media prior to boarding flight in London, Sharif made it clear that he never liked his disqualification decision by the Supreme Court but acted upon the court orders and surrendered before the law of Pakistan, without resorting to any delaying tactics or running away from the courts under any pretext.
“We have faced sham trials before… but we never ran away and faced accountability time and again,” he said. “Why should I leave the country every 10 years? What have I done?”
Sharif said he had yet to comprehend why “this whole exercise in the name of accountability” had been rolled out against him.
“The case started in the name of Panama… my name was not even [mentioned]in the Panama [papers], it’s still not there, nothing was found against me in Panama, not until today. When nothing was found in Panama against me, I was ousted using Iqama. I am shocked and saddened that this drama has been staged because it is Pakistan that has suffered and continues to suffer,” he lamented.
