Courts being pressured from dispensing justice, says Rana Sana

While blasting the government for resorting to politics of vendetta, PML-N leader Rana Sanaullah on Saturday said that courts are being pressured from providing justice to the opposition leaders.

Speaking to media persons in Lahore, Rana Sanaullah said "Courts are being stopped from dispensing justice in this whole process of opposition leaders' victimisation."

Sanaullah could not be indicted in the drugs smuggling case Saturday as the judge who was supposed to conduct the hearing was on leave. The PML-N leader said that families of judges who hear cases against opposition parties are monitored.

"[As you know] judges are also changed through WhatsApp [messages]," he said. 

Further criticising the accountability process in the country, Sanaullah said that everyone "from the chairman NAB to his assistant are being held hostage and are being blackmailed".

"Even the questions they ask are handed to them from somewhere else," he said. "By creating this environment of fear in the country, we are pushing it towards anarchy and chaos," he added.

The PML-N leader said that the law and order situation in the country was a "total failure".

Sanaullah criticised Prime Minister Imran Khan over his earlier remarks on dual nationals, when he said that they should not be allowed to become members of the parliament. 

He accused the prime minister of following double standards when it came to his own advisers and assistants who were dual nationals, adding that the entire nation was witnessing how the government was focused on the politics of vendetta.
