PTI Chairman sentence suspension: politicians take to X

ISLAMABAD: The legal spokesperson to the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Naeem Haider Panjutha took to X (formerly Twitter) to inform the public that his client’s sentence has been suspended.

“The Chief Justice has accepted our request, while suspending the sentence, he has said that a detailed decision will be taken later”, he wrote.

Multiple politicians then took to the microblogging platform to voice their reactions.

The former prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) leader Shehbaz Sharif in a lengthy tweet accused the Chief Justice of playing favourites, pointing out that he became the monitoring judge in the case to save his “ladla” (favourite).

“The law is powerless before the watchman,” he wrote, lamenting that “this role of justice system will be written in the dark chapter of history.”

PML-N president and former interior minister Rana Sanaullah re-tweeted his post from last night in which he was quick to point out that the PTI chairman’s release is not yet possible; “in other cases prosecution will have to be faced!”

Meanwhile, Senator Faisal Javed Khan tweeted his relief at the time the decision was announced. “Praise be to God!”

PTI’s former Khyber Pakhtunkawa finance minister Taimur Khan Jhagra said hinted that the suspension may mark an end to what he believes was a “abuse of the law campaign” against the PTI chief.
