Pakistan’s former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday accused Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial of trying to protect Imran Khan after finding loopholes in his conviction in the Toshakhana corruption case verdict.

Chief Justice Bandial on Wednesday said there were “loopholes” in the trial court’s Toshakhana case judgment against 70-year-old Khan.

“The Chief Justice is well aware that this person [Imran Khan] Has wreaked havoc on Pakistan’s economy, morality and culture. He has preached violence and repeatedly violated the Constitution,” Sharif told reporters outside his Avenfield residence in London, where he has been living since 2019.
