Zardari won’t be sent to jail: Rana Sanaullah

Islamabad: Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) leader Rana Sanaullah has said that former president Asif Ali Zardari will not be sent to jail in the fake accounts cases.

In an interview, Sanaullah said that there was no implementation of the death sentences awarded by military courts till May 31, 2018. “All the orders were stopped on different forums and at different stages due to which there was no effect of the orders,” he said.

He remarked that the military courts were formed under extraordinary circumstances. No death sentences have been implemented in Punjab till today, he said. “There is a problem with the execution system, hence no alternative system was introduced in these four years.”

He raised objections to the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) report in the fake accounts case and the decision against former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
