Lahore, Oct 1 (IANS) Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter and the opposition PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz has approached the Lahore High Court for post-arrest bail in a money laundering case being investigated by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
A two-judge bench comprising Justices Ali Baqar Najafi and Sardar Ahmad Naeem will take up the bail petition on Tuesday, Dawn news reported.
An accountability court last week denied further physical remand of Maryam and her cousin Yousaf Abbas to the NAB sending them to jail on judicial remand.
They remained on physical remand for 49 days after their arrest on August 8.
NAB has mainly accused Maryam of committing money laundering through investments of variable heavy amounts being main shareholder of Chaudhry Sugar Mills (CSM).
It said she was involved in money laundering with the help of some foreigners during the period of 1992-93 when Nawaz Sharif was Prime Minister.
