NAB approaches LHC For cancellation of Mohatrama Maryam Nawaz’s Bail

LAHORE: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Saturday approached the Lahore High Court (LHC) for the cancellation of bail granted to PML-N leader Mohtarma Maryam Nawaz Sharif in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case.

Earlier, Mian Nawaz Sharif had said that his daughter was threatened to be “smashed” if she didn’t change her politics.

A two-member bench presided over by Justice Sarfaraz Dogar will hear the plea on March 15.

NAB argued that Maryam Nawaz is misusing her bail and is issuing statements against state institutions and involved in anti-state propaganda.

“Maryam is not cooperating with its investigations despite being offered a reprieve,” NAB said.

The plea further states that several investigations are underway against the PML-N leader; however she did not provide any record when she was asked for it on January 10, 2020.

Accountability Bureau has named Maryam Nawaz and the interior ministry as respondents in the case and urged the court to cancel Maryam’s bail.

In November 2019, Lahore High Court (LHC) granted bail to PML-N leader Maryam Nawaz who was arrested in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills (CSM) case.

The two-member bench of the high court, comprising Justice Ali Baqar Najafi and Justice Sardar Ahmad Naeem, announced the verdict and ordered her to furnish two surety bonds, each worth Rs10 million, and deposit an additional Rs70million and surrender her passport to secure her release.

At the time, the NAB prosecutor had opposed the PML-N leader’s plea.
