The Accountability Court has furthered the physical remand of Maryam Nawaz and her cousin Yousuf Abbas for the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case by eight more days, according to Geo News.
During the proceedings, the NAB prosecutor said investigations brought up evidence of an agreement for the division of the family’s assets.
Reports indicate that on multiple occasions, shares had been divided between the Board of Directors- namely Mian Sharif, Kulsoom Nawaz, Hussain Nawaz, Maryam Nawaz- that were not included in the family assets. These shares ranged from 14 to 26 million.
PML-N supporters have taken to Twitter with the hashtags #AikBahadurLarki and #PrideOfTheNationMNS in support of the party’s Vice President, showing outrage at the court’s decision.
