Imran Khan's Facilitators Are 'On The Run', Says Maryam
PML-N Senior Vice President Maryam Nawaz has said that former premier Imran Khan's facilitators are 'on the run', saying those who conspired against him were now confessing to their crimes.

"We don't have to do anything... they are exposing themselves," Maryam told party workers gathered in Faisalabad.

According to her, not only the facilitators are confessing to their crimes, but are also pointing out others who were part of the conspiracy.

Maryam – who is the daughter of party's supremo Nawaz Sharif – went on to say that the conspirers were in the process of leaving the country, afraid of being taken to task.

"I say this to the Panama bench [that disqualified Nawaz] and Saqib Nisar, this nation won't ever forgive you regardless of what you say in your defence," she remarked.

A day earlier, Maryam said that Lt Gen (retd) Faiz Hameed had confessed to his crime and it was time for institutions to act.

“If he has accepted it and confessed to it, then the institution of the armed forces [should] take notice of it,” Maryam said during an interview with anchorperson Adil Shahzeb during Dawn News show.

She termed the remarks by the former military officer a “confessional statement”, calling him a ‘stigma’ for the institution.

On Wednesday, Maryam demanded Faiz’ court martial as according to her, he had played a role in the ouster of the then PML-N government and destroyed the country by supporting Imran Khan.

After her remarks, senior journalist Kamran Khan said in a tweet that the former ISI chief had reached out to him and provided a response to the allegations levelled at him by the PML-N leader.

According to Khan, Faiz argued that in 2017-18, he was a major general and asked whether, under army discipline, an officer alone could throw a government out.

He was also quoted as saying by the journalist that it is the army chief who has the final say, and that all major decisions [at the time] were essentially taken by the courts.
