LAHORE: Maryam Nawaz has submitted her reply to the LHC over the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) petition for the cancellation of her bail in Chaudhry Sugar Mills case.
Maryam Nawaz pleaded with the high court to reject the petition of the anti-corruption watchdog besides slapping a fine against the institution.
In her six-page response, the PML-N vice president stated that the NAB has kept a complete silence for 14 months in the case before summoning her again.
The cases filed by the anti-graft watchdog and arrests were purposed to suppress the voice, said Maryam Nawaz, adding that the bureau was playing the role of a political engineer and its petition was giving an impression about NAB chairman for acting as a government’s spokesperson.
She further stated that the Lahore High Court (LHC) had granted bail to her in the case on merit after listening to the stance of the NAB. Furthermore, she stated that NAB’s duty is eliminating corruption but not to take action over political statements.
