‘Who gave affidavit to journalist’ is the biggest question?

ISLAMABAD: Adviser to the Prime Minister on Accountability Shahzad Akbar Sunday said the Sharif family had launched a premeditated attack on the judiciary to hamper and influence proceedings.

In a tweet, Shahzad said it had also been revealed that Nawaz Sharif had Rana Shamim sign the shady affidavit in his presence at his office. “The big question now was who gave the questionable affidavit to the journalist, as Rana Shamim had said that it was in a safe.”

Meanwhile, Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry Sunday said former Gilgit-Baltistan chief justice Rana Shamim had got his affidavit notarised in the presence of Nawaz Sharif at his office.

Fawad Chaudhry shared a newspaper clipping on Twitter and said new revelations had proved once again that the Sharif family worked like a ‘Sicilian mafia’. He said the report had exposed the Sharif family’s expertise in blackmailing institutions, including the judiciary, like a “mafia.”

As per the report shared by the minister, “Rana Shamim, former chief judge of Gilgit-Baltistan took the oath and signed an affidavit in the office of none other than Mian Nawaz Sharif, trying to incriminate former chief justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar and honorable sitting judge of the Islamabad High Court.”

On November 17, it was reported that ex-CJ of Gilgit-Baltistan Rana Shamim was in direct contact with PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif, Shamim's son Ahmed Hassan Rana had claimed.

Speaking on Geo News programme ‘Aaj Shahzeb Khanzada Kay Sath’, Supreme Court Advocate Ahmed Hassan Rana had said that his father had had long-standing relations with Nawaz Sharif and that he had been the vice president of PML-N Sindh's lawyer wing. He had said his father was Nawaz Sharif's lawyer in the Memogate scandal case.

Meanwhile, Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Farrukh Habib said on Sunday that Rana Shamim was an official of PML-N lawyers' wing and his son has admitted this on a television channel.

In a tweet, he said it was a great revelation now that Nawaz Sharif got the affidavit written in his presence to attack the judiciary. Farrukh remarked that this was the reason Nawaz Sharif was called godfather of the Sicilian mafia.

    It is irrelevant where the affidavit was signed and who gave it to the media. The relevant thing is to investigate its truthfulness and that is only possible when saqib nisar is also called in the court to face rana shamim
