New developments reported in LHC over Maryam Nawaz bail plea
ISLAMABAD - New developments reported in Lahore High Court over Maryam Nawaz bail plea.
Lahore High Court (LHC) on Tuesday has postponed hearing on petition seeking bail of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) vice president Maryam Nawaz in Chaudhry Sugar Mills case till October 30.
The hearing was adjourned over the request of director general of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Lahore.
Responding to NAB’s appeal, Maryam Nawaz’s lawyer said the court had not issued any notice to anti-corruption watchdog’s DG and that we can easily brief the case in this hearing. However, Justice Ali Baqir adjourned the proceedings, saying that the arguments will be recorded in the presence of NAB counsel.
Earlier, NAB had submitted preliminary investigative report to the LHC on Maryam Nawaz’s bail plea, where the bureau had expressed fear that she might flee abroad.
