Pakistan judge 'forced' to convict Nawaz Sharif, says daughter


Daughter of former Pakistan premier Nawaz Sharif has claimed that an accountability court judge confessed he had been "blackmailed" to convict her father.

Addressing a press conference in Lahore on Saturday, Maryam Nawaz, alongside the top leadership of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), released a video that shows the judge claiming he was coerced to sentence Sharif despite lack of evidence.

She asserted that her father's seven-year sentencing in the Al-Azizia corruption case was severely compromised.

Nawaz and his family have denied any wrongdoing and allege the corruption cases are politically motivated.
