Pakistan’s NAB seeks cancellation of Maryam Nawaz’s bail for engaging in ‘anti-state propaganda’
Pakistan’s National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has moved the Lahore High Court (LHC) seeking the cancellation of bail granted to Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case.
According to the accountability watchdog, Maryam is obstructing the investigation by not appearing, and is using tactics to give the public the impression that state institutions are inactive.
NAB maintained that after her release on bail, she has been attacking state institutions through media and social media, and has continuously made false accusations and is engaged in anti-state propaganda.
NAB has been mired in controversy over violation of human rights, character assassination and arresting people at the inquiry stage to weaken the opposition’s anti-government movement.
The LHC on November 4, 2019, had granted bail to PML-N leader Maryam Nawaz who was arrested in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills (CSM) case.
