New Evidence – New Invitation: NAB Summons Maryam Nawaz in Sugar Mills Case

“In the light of new evidence, Maryam Nawaz should be investigated”

PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz has been summoned by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Lahore on Wednesday in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case.

The daughter of the former Prime Minister has been directed to appear before NAB Lahore on Friday, March 26 in the case. She had earlier appeared before the accountability watchdog on August 11, 2020.

According to the NAB spokesperson, the bureau has received new evidence concerning the PML-N vice president.

“In the light of new evidence, Maryam Nawaz should be investigated.”

He added.

Maryam had been arrested along with her cousin Yousaf Abbas by NAB in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case on August 8.

According to the NAB, the bureau in January 2018 had received a Financial Monitoring Unit (FMU) report describing suspicious transactions in billions of rupees regarding the Chaudhry Sugar Mills under the Anti-Money Laundering Act. At the time, the PML-N was the ruling party in the country.

In October 2018, NAB started its inquiry after receiving the FMU report and found that Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz, Shahbaz Sharif and family, and Abbas Sharif and family are shareholders in the company, along with some foreigners from the UAE and the UK.

Furthermore, the probe found that huge investments were made in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills from 2001 to 2017 amounting to billions of rupees in the name of issuing shares in foreigners’ names.

Later on, the same shares were transferred back to Maryam, Hussain, and Nawaz without paying any money to the foreign business partners.
