LHC defers hearing of Maryam Nawaz’s bail petition

LAHORE: The hearing of a bail petition filed by Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) vice president Maryam Nawaz has been postponed by the Lahore High Court (LHC) due to absence of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) prosecutor, according to media.

A two-member bench headed by LHC’s Justice Ali Baqar Najafi heard the bail petition submitted by Maryam Nawaz, where a plea was submitted to postpone the hearing by NAB director-general.

An official of the anti-corruption watchdog told the court that Bharwana is unable to appear in the hearing as he is currently present in Islamabad.

Maryam Nawaz’s counsel pleaded the court to allow partial arguments, however, the court rejected to resume hearing in absence of the NAB’s prosecutor.

The high court deferred the hearing of the bail petition following the absence of NAB prosecutor Jahanzeb Bharwana. Later, the hearing was adjourned till Wednesday (tomorrow).
