The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Tuesday adjourned the hearing of a plea submitted by Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) vice-president Maryam Nawaz seeking permission to travel abroad.

The high court resumed the hearing on the plea where Maryam Nawaz’s lawyer appeared to continue arguments.

During the hearing, Maryam’s lawyer in his arguments told LHC judge that court had already granted bail to PML-N leader in Chaudhary Sugar Mills case and suspended sentence in Avenfiled case.

“Maryam should be allowed to travel abroad,” said Maryam’s counsel.

He requested court to make former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s fresh medical reports as part of ECL case.

At which, the LHC has sought an answer from the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on a request of Maryam Nawaz for making Nawaz Sharif’s fresh medical reports as part of the ECL plea case.

The court then adjourned the hearing till February 25.
