Maryam Nawaz released on bail
LAHORE: Nawaz Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz has been released following her on bail from an accountability court.
The PML-N vice president was supposed to be released yesterday; however, the failure to submit surety bonds with the trial court delayed the process.
On Nov 4, the LHC granted bail to Maryam Nawaz in Chaudhry Sugar Mills case.
A two-member bench headed by Justice Ali Baqar Najafi announced the verdict – reserved on October 31 – on Maryam Nawaz’s bail plea. The bench has directed Maryam Nawaz to submit her passport in the LHC.
The court order consisting of 24 pages also directed the PML-N leader to deposit 70 million separately with the court.
The detailed verdict stated that it has been agreed that Maryam Nawaz being a woman must be given bail as she neither remained absconder nor did she created hurdles in interrogation.
It remains to be seen whether or not Maryam Nawaz resumes her active politics and joins the sit-in being staged by opposition parties in Islamabad.
