Islamabad: Issuing details of its verdict barring opposition PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif from electoral politics, Pakistan’s supreme court has slammed the former prime minister for “publicly propagating his biased opinion” and acting in a manner “prejudicial” to the integrity of the judiciary.
The apex court also said Sharif had defaulted on loans from several banks and had been convicted by an anti-corruption court, nearly a month after it delivered a short verdict that disqualified him and his brother Shahbaz Sharif from contesting polls and holding public offices.
