ISLAMABAD: The Accountability Court dismissed on Friday the National Accountability Bureau plea against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz Vice President Maryam Nawaz in the Avenfield reference.
Maryam Nawaz reached the federal capital from Lahore on Friday to appear before the accountability court. Earlier this month, the court’s judge Mohammad Bashir issued summons for Maryam Nawaz as the NAB claimed that the trust deeds produced by her in the case were bogus. The court dismissed the plea, declaring it inadmissible for hearing.
Due to the former first daughter’s appearance, strict security measures were put in place outside the judicial complex and unconcerned people were barred from entry.
PML-N workers chanted slogans in favour of their party leader as police earlier arrested seven party workers.
Speaking to media outside the court, Maryam Nawaz said that she is willing to give five years to the government but people are not willing to.
Maryam Nawaz’s court appearance came a day after former prime minister and PML-N leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi’s arrest from NAB in relation to the LNG case.
