Maryam’s bail: LHC accepts NAB petition for cancellation

Monitoring Desk: 

The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Saturday accepted the petition filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) for the cancellation of Pakistan Muslim League (N) Vice-President Maryam Nawaz’s bail.

A two-judge bench headed by Justice Sardar Muhammad Sarfraz Dogar will hear the petition moved by the watchdog on March 15.

According to the petition, Maryam had been released on bail over money laundering charges in the CSM case.

It quoted NAB Chairman Justice (r), Javed Iqbal, as saying that since her bail, Maryam had been “continuously attacking state institutions” and making statements against them on media and social media.

“Maryam Nawaz is also engaged in anti-state propaganda,” the NAB chairman said in the petition.

It claimed that Maryam was deliberately making statements to tarnish the image of state institutions and give the impression that they had become inactive.

The petition added that Maryam had not responded to NAB notices sent on January 10, 2020, to provide documents in the CSM case.

Furthermore, she “used her political power and attacked the NAB office” when she was summoned in person on August 11, 2020, for not providing her documents, according to the petition.

“Maryam Nawaz’s workers pelted stones at the police and NAB office for which a case has been registered separately,” it said. The NAB chairman maintained that Maryam was obstructing the NAB investigation by not appearing when summoned.
