The PML-N has said the FIA has committed contempt of court by stopping Shehbaz Sharif from going abroad revealing its diminutive stature, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

PML-N spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb was talking to media outside the FIA office in Lahore on Saturday. She was accompanied by Shaista Pervaiz Malik, Atta Ullah Tarar, Ali Pervaiz, Ghazali Butt, Waheed Alam Khan, Bilal Yaseen and other PML-N activists. 

Ms Aurangzeb said that the Federal Investigation Agency committed contempt of court at the behest of the government which had belittled itself by flouting the court order. She said on Prime Minister Imran Khan’s order, PML-N leader Shehbaz Sharif was offloaded from his Qatar flight. 

She said now the names of Prime Minister Khan and his adviser on accountability Shahzad Akbar should be placed on Exit Control List. 

She said Shehbaz’s name was not on the ECL. She alleged that ‘person not in list’ was actually drafted by prime minister so that Shehbaz could not go abroad. She said that in black list, only the names of terrorists have been placed. She said the court had allowed Shehbaz one time permission to go abroad. She said the deputy director law was present during Shehbaz’s hearing in the Lahore High Court but he didn’t mention anything. 

She said NAB resorted to the Supreme Court before going to the LHC, but the apex court rejected NAB’s petition.

She said that so-called hired spokespersons were committing contempt of LHC’s order while expressing their views in TV shows. 

Ms Aurangzeb vowed to utilize every available legal option. She said PM Advisor on Accountability Shahzad Akbar and Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry were behind this episode. 

She said ex-DG FIA Bashir Memon had already informed that Prime Minister Khan wanted to make FIA a political hostage. She said the government had made hostage all the institutions and system.

She derided that those who used to mount on containers and would flout papers accusing political leaders of wanting NRO, they could prove nothing against them. When the rulers found nothing against them, they started abusing power. She termed it Niazi-NAB nexus. 

She said the PML-N won’t let go this incident and would go to court
