Pakistan Intelligence Agency, ISI, Manipulating Elections in Pakistan – Judge



Right ahead of elections in Pakistan, a high court judge in Pakistan created ripples when he made sensational claims about the interference of the ISI, the Pakistani intelligence agency, with the judiciary. The judge claimed that the courts in Pakistan are being controlled by the ISI and this sparked a nationwide protest against the intelligence agency. The Pakistan Army has now urged the Supreme Court to launch an investigation against the ISI to testify claims.

The Pakistan Military on Sunday released a statement that called upon the apex court the probe the allegations levelled against the ISI and henceforth testify the authenticity of the accusations made by Islamabad High Court Judge Shaukat Aziz Siddique.

The Pakistan military in its statement said that it has urged the Supreme Court to ensure the credibility and the sanctity of national institutions. The Chief Justice of Pakistan, Saqib Nisar responded to the claims made by the Islamabad High Court Judge and asked for the complete video record of his claims from the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority.

ISI behind Nawaz Sharif’s Conviction?

The high court judge also claimed that it was ISI which had influenced the judiciary so as to get Nawaz Sharif, the former Prime Minister convicted. Nawaz Sharif was awarded a sentence for 10 years in jail after he was found guilty in a corruption case. His daughter and son in law were also awarded imprisonment for seven years and one year respectively in the same case of disproportionate assets.

The Judge also stated that the ISI had asked him to make sure that Nawaz Sharif and his daughter remain jailed till elections in Pakistan are conducted on July 25. The judge said that the ISI has influenced many verdicts of the judiciary including the one against the ousted Prime Minister. He also accused the police of joining hands with the ISI to break laws and abduct people unprecedently.
