Lahore: The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Monday sought a reply from Maryam Nawaz, Vice President of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), requesting it to report to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) raised questions about her bail in the Chowdhury Sugar Factory case.
A two-member bench of LHC has conducted the hearing during which, Chaudhry Khaleeq-uz-Zaman and Faisal Bukhari appeared before the court from NAB side while Maryam Nawaz didn’t attend the proceedings.
The NAB lawyer told the LHC judge that the PML-N leader abused bail and did not appear in front of the anti-corruption gatekeeper. He claimed that Maryam Nawaz, with the help of her activists, smashed a stone in the office of the National Bank.
The NAB representative further adopted the stance that inquiry against PML-N vice present has been changed into investigation.
Earlier today, Maryam Nawaz reiterated that she is not afraid of detentions and threats.
Talking to media at Jati Umra in Lahore, the PML-N leader said that ‘fake’ leaders of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) are in panic condition due to the popularity of Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM). The concerned authorities are ready to arrest the opposition leaders whenever they talk about the rallies or long march, she added.
In response to a challenge from the National Australia Bank (NAB) for bail at Chaudhry Sugar Mills, Maryam Nawaz asked how the anti-corruption watchdog was given the power to examine witness testimony.
She insisted that the National Bank failed to fulfill its duty to eliminate corruption in the country.
