Judiciary, institutions have dual standards for Sindh

Karachi (Monitoring Desk): Opposition Leader in National Assembly Khursheed Shah has said that judiciary and other state institutions have dual standards for Sindh as compared to Punjab.

Shah, a leader of the Sindh-centric Pakistan Peoples Party, said that there have been no arrests of Nawaz Sharif’s family, nor have their names been put in the Exit Control List despite serious graft cases against them.

He added that former Sindh information minister Sharjeel Memon voluntarily presented himself before the court but he is not getting justice.

Referring to the accountability court cases against the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader and his family, the leader of the opposition said that the cases are a test for the judiciary.

“This is a test for the Supreme Court from now on dual standards of justice won’t continue,” he said.

The PPP believes that the federal government, through the National Accountability Bureau and Federal Investigation Agency, is taking undue action against its leaders.

Memon was arrested by NAB on October 23, after hours of being holed up in court premises in a Rs5.6 billion corruption case.
