PM should exercise discretionary powers to allow Nawaz Sharif going abroad, government should provide him complete medical facilities: Ch Shujat Hussain
Judiciary should not be dragged into political matters, there is difference between verdicts of the courts and executive decisions of the government, court verdicts are used as examples
Lahore: 26-10-2019: Pakistan Muslim League (PML) President and former Prime Minister Ch Shujat Hussain has suggested that judiciary should not be dragged into political matter, Prime Minister Imran Khan should exercise his discretionary powers and allow Nawaz Sharif going abroad for treatment and the government should provide him complete medical facilities.
In a statement issued here today (Saturday), Ch Shujat Hussain said that in the political nature cases, decisions are used as examples which result in creation of problems, other people also put burden on the courts by using such cases as basis, there is difference between the verdicts of the courts and executive decisions of the government because executive measures are taken under discretionary powers in extraordinary circumstances and these do not become judicial examples.
Ch Shujat Hussain further said that there is no allegation of being anti-State on Nawaz Sharif, there are only financial misappropriations charges on him, in such cases the judiciary should not be put to test, this can cause far-reaching dangerous results. #
