Prime Minister Imran Khan's tweet comes at a time when Pakistan Accountability Court Judge Arshad Malik has claimed in a letter to the Islamabad High Court that he was offered a bribe of Rs 10 crore. Malik is caught up in a video controversy these days. Malik has claimed in his letter that he had been offered Rs 50 crore on behalf of Hussain Nawaz, son of former PM Nawaz Sharif and his entire family abroad, on the condition that he should resign to convict Nawaz Sharif without any evidence. Crimes are no longer able to endure.

Judge Arshad Malik had sentenced Sharif to seven years in prison in the Al Azizia Steel Mill case on December 24 last year. He said in the letter that Nasir Janjua and Maher Jilani have been meeting him since he was appointed Justice of the Islamabad-based Accountability Court-2. Since then, the two have been demanding a decision in favour of former PM Nawaz Sharif in the HME and Flagship Investment case.
