LAHORE: National Accountability Bureau (NAB) team Wednesday delivered notice summoning PML-N vice president Maryam Nawaz on July19 over the use of a bogus trust deed in the Avenfield properties case at Jati Umra.
As per details, a special team of NAB along with police reached Jati Umra to deliver the notice. An accountability court in Islamabad asked NAB to present Maryam Nawaz in court.
NAB Deputy Prosecutor General Sardar Muzaffar Khan Abbasi filed the application, seeking action against Maryam Nawaz for producing a bogus trust deed before the accountability court in order to conceal the London properties.
The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had claimed that the trust deed submitted by Maryam Nawaz was forged, and requested the court to start trial against the PML-N leader.
The anti-corruption watchdog maintained that the charge of submitting fake trust deed was dismissed during the indictment in the Avenfield reference against Maryam Nawaz. The PML-N vice president has to face a separate trial after it was proven that she committed forgery, it added.
NAB pointed out that the judge had the power to initiate action against Maryam Nawaz under Section 30 of the National Accountability Ordinance (NAO).
An accountability court on Friday July 06, 2018 jailed former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Captain (Retd) Muhammad Safdar for Senate Secretariat will issue a new schedule for voting of the new chairman.
A couple of days ago, the ‘Rehbar Committee’ of the joint opposition had decided to grant the chairmanship of the Senate to the PML-N – the party with the majority of the seats in the opposition in the National Assembly (NA).
It was also decided that the party would leave the position of the Leader of the Opposition in the Senate after having its senator as the senate chairman.
In this regard, the Rehbar Committee has been mulling over amongst its members for the designation of the opposition leader in the Senate.
Furthermore, it was also decided that no changes would be made to the position of the deputy chairman of the Senate, which is currently held by Pakistan Peoples Party’s (PPP) Saleem Mandviwala. – NNI
