National Accountability Bureau had explained to the court why it demanded an extension in the physical remand of Maryam Nawaz Sharif. Senior journalist and media person Rauf Klasra quoted the court’s documents and told that Maryam Nawaz is constantly lying and avoiding answers to the questions. NAB has submitted an internal inquiry report of Maryam Nawaz in court in which the details regarding her prior interrogation has been explained.
When asked about the 1 crore and 10 lac shares of Chaudhary Sugar Mills case that she possessed by 2008 and were bought from the three foreign nationals, she replied in affirmation and the very next moment changed her stance and said that these shares were transferred to her instead.
When inquired about the source of transfer and the foreign nationals who transferred the shares she put the entire burden of proof on her late grandfather and uttered that he’s the one who used to deal with foreign nationals and he’s the sole person responsible for the matter.
The grandfather of Maryam Nawaz died in 2004 and shares were acquired four years later, questioned NAB, then she turned to blame her cousin Hamza Shahbaz who is currently under the NAB custody. Hamza Shahbaz declined to answer about the transactions and referred back to her (Maryam Nawaz) for the inquiry, Rauf Klasra further quoted the NAB inquiry.
Nasir Lutha, who has become an approver in the Omni Group case, was then held responsible and went on to say that my name has been misused in the case and knows nothing about it.
The accountability court granted a 14-days extension in the physical remand of Maryam Nawaz and her cousin Yousaf Abbas in the Chaudhary Sugar Mills case. Both were arrested at the start of this month. Accountability judge has ordered the two to be presented before the court on September 4.
NAB sighted huge investments in Chaudhary Sugar Mills in the name of foreigners and these shares were then transferred in the name of the daughter of three times premier of Pakistan. Maryam is already convicted in the Avenfied Reference case but her sentence was canceled by another court granting her acquittal.
