All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) Secretary General Dr Muhammad Amjad here Wednesdaywhile addressing a press conference said that party Chairman, General (retd) Pervez Musharraf is ready to face accountability and we request judges of Supreme Court to form a Joint Investigation Team (JIT) to probe assets of Gen Musharraf.
With Iftikhar Chaudhry heading Supreme Court of Pakistan, public lost faith in judiciary and some controversial decisions were pronounced. After apex Supreme Court rendered judgment in panama case, faith in judiciary has gone restored and Gen Musharraf is ready to face a complete probe.
APML secretary general said that Gen Musharraf is ready to return Pakistan if government ensure his non-arrest, free movement and provide him with security. And if government does not accede to his request his date of return will be announced in APML public meeting in Faisalabad on August 12.
APML demanded registration of a high treason case against Azad Jammu & Kashmir (AJ&K) prime minister Raja Farooq Haider.
Party also announced boycott of Jang/Geo Group alleging damages to Kashmir cause.
Regarding accountability of Gen Musharraf, Dr Amjad said that Supreme Court has regained its credibility with judgment in Panama case. Political opponents of APML level false allegations against Musharraf and once and for all it should get clear that whether he was involved in corruption, money laundering and acquiring expensive properties outside the country with money looted from Pakistan.
Gen Musharraf will fully cooperate with JIT and will accept a judgment either in favor or against whatever the case may be. If Gen Musharraf proved innocent, we will request the court to quash all FIRs registered against him as all these cases were formed on political bases. PML-N in collaboration with former Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry formed these cases to keep General Musharraf out of elections.
Gen Musharraf already applied for provision of security to the government and if government don’t process the application, his return will be announced on August 12 in Faisalabad public meeting, where APML will put up a great show in collaboration with its allied parties. Leaders of allied parties will address the meeting while Gen Musharraf will address through a video link.
Dr Amjad said that Gen Musharraf will make an important announcement and APML will prove that it has become third largest political force in the country and will succeed in 2018 elections.
About AJ&K Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider, APML secretary general demanded to register high treason case against him under article ‘6’ unless he withdraw his statement. APML demanded that Raja Farooq Haider may be deposed from the prime minister office. Kashmiris in Indian occupied Kashmir are fighting against India and martyrs are being buried in Pakistani flag. Farooq Haider has disgrace the sacrifices of Kashmiri people.
About Jang/Geo group, Dr Amjad said that the media group highlighted Farooq Haider’s statement to appease India and damage Kashmir cause. Jang Group had been doing propaganda against Supreme Court and JIT formed to probe corruption charges. APML chairman liberated media but that does not mean a liberty without any moral obligations and to cause damage to the national interests.
It was General Musharraf who allowed Jang Group to obtain license for a TV channel despite objections by the ministry of interior that newspaper owners may not be given TV channel license and now this TV channel is doing propaganda against Gen Musharraf, he also said.
