Shahbaz Sharif terms Broadsheet CEO apology ‘historic day’

ISLAMABAD: Following an apology from assets recovery firm Broadsheet’s CEO Kahveh Moussavi, PML-N’s leader Shahbaz Sharif said that today is a very “important day” in the history of Pakistan.

Addressing a press conference flanked by Ahsan Iqbal and Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Shahbaz said that the head of the British firm has issued an “unconditional apology to former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, acknowledging that they did not find a single loose corruption case against him.”

“This is a tight slap on Prime Minister Imran Khan’s face.” he said, accusing him of pushing the nation into an abyss of poverty and unemployment.

Shahbaz, who is also the leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly, said Broadsheet was established during Pervez Musharraf’s tenure.

“…NAB-Niazi nexus along with Shehzad Akbar tried hard to prove corruption against Nawaz Sharif, however, they failed miserably,” he added.

He questioned where is the joint investigation team (JIT) held Nawaz accountable. Shahbaz retiterated that nothing has been proved despite 20 years of investigation.

The PML-N leader said that the incumbent government ridiculed, propagandised Nawaz and the party on television, and today everybody witnessed the “drop scene.”

It may be recalled that earlier today, Moussavi had issued a profound apology to former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, withdrawing all corruption allegations and for being part of a “witch hunt” that has been running in the name of accountability for over two decades.
