Maryam Nawaz to be released today as her surety bonds are submitted

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz is expected to release today (Wednesday) after approval of her two surety bonds worth Rs10 million each.

The surety bonds have been submitted in the accountability court on Wednesday.

The Lahore High Court (LHC) had ordered submission of two surety bonds for her release.

The PML-N’s lawyer informed the registrar of the LHC that all documents of Maryam Nawaz’s bail were completed.

He requested the registrar to issue instructions for obtaining bail bonds.

The registrar rejected the request of Maryam Nawaz’s lawyer as the time of the federal courts is till 3pm.

Earlier on November 04, The Lahore High Court (LHC granted bail to Maryam Nawaz in Chaudhry Sugar Mills case.

The two members LHC bench headed by Justice Ali Baqar Najafi had reserved verdict on Maryam Nawaz’s bail plea.

Lawyer Amjad Pervez said that money laundering case against his client is baseless and that she was made Chief Executive of Chaudhry Sugar Mills only in papers and has no shares from quite a long period of time.

The control of Chaudhry Sugar Mills was in control of his grandfather Mohammad Sharif, he added, which later was transferred to Abbas Sharif after his death.

NAB had breached law and arrested Maryam in money laundering case despite revealing all the assets in Panama Leaks case, he added.

Earlier, NAB had submitted preliminary investigative report to the LHC stating that PML-N vice-president’s crime is not against one individual but the entire society, and she keeps on obstructing the probe against her.
