Maryam Nawaz released on bail

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz was released on bail on Wednesday after her lawyers fulfilled requirements set forth by the Lahore High Court (LHC).

According to details, Kot Lakhpat Jail officials issued the release orders that were later sent to Services Hospital for signatures.

The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Monday granted bail to Maryam in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) prosecutor had opposed the PML-N leader’s plea, which Maryam had filed after her father Nawaz Sharif was hospitalized in critical condition.

Nawaz, who had been serving a jail term in Al-Azizia reference case, was also given bail by a bench of the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on humanitarian grounds last month.

LHC had asked Maryam to submit her passport to satisfy “judicial conscience” as prosecution expressed apprehension she would flee the country.

The court also asked her to submit two surety bonds of Rs10 million each and deposit Rs70 million with Deputy Registrar.
