LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz on Saturday castigated the PTI chief for hiring a controversial lawyer for the legal battle against “unlawful detention and human rights abuses.”

Maryam described the move as PTI’s double standard. She said the PTI head had selected a person who had served a lawyer of Salman Rushdie.

Reports said the PTI chief had hired the services of British barrister Geoffrey Robertson to represent him in the international courts.

The decision to hire Robertson has been confirmed by the party on its X account, where it shared a screenshot of a post by the Doughty Street Chambers - a set of barristers’ chambers based in the UK.

The deposed prime minister is incarcerated in the Attock jail in the cipher case.

PMLN is good only at doing propaganda. This party is worst of all. The same lawyer was hired by Ishaq Dar too. What a shameful way by a lady who was caught red handed cheating on documents in supreme court.

It is not surprising to see why Pakistan's intellect to economics is dooming. Liberal journalists who always criticize bringing Islam in politics are on forefront to drag Islamic touch in a lawyer appointment too. Same comes to the political parties especially PML-N whereas JUI/JI are directly Islamist political parties. PTI would have done same.
