Plea seeking cancellation of bail granted to Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz will be heard today in Lahore High Court.

LHC will hear the case in connection with the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case.

According to details, the plea will be heard by a two-member bench including Justice Sarfaraz Dogar and Justice Asjad Giral.

NAB has stated that Maryam is taking unnecessary advantage of the bail. NAB further says that Nawaz is not cooperating as an investigation into the case is in process.

NAB has appealed to the court to suspend bail given to Maryam Nawaz.

It is pertinent to mention that Nawaz was granted bail on November 4, 2019.

The Sharif family is accused of using Chaudhry Sugar Mills for money-laundering and illegal transfer of its shares. NAB had stated that the Sharif family took a loan of $15 million to establish the mill, but the mill was already established before the loan was sought. More than Rs 7 million worth of shares were given to Maryam Nawaz in 2008. The money was later transferred to Yousaf Abbas Sharif in 2010.
