Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President (VP) Maryam Nawaz has been quoted as accusing National Accountability Bureau (NAB) officials of threatening her against speaking to media persons.
According to a private television channel’s journalist, NAB authorities have warned the jailed PML-N leader that “she won’t be allowed to see her children if speaks to media”.
“I was about to ask her [Maryam] about the current political situation in the country when she stopped me. ‘I have been told by NAB officials to not speak to media,’ she said,” the journalist claimed in his write-up.
He further claimed to ask the PML-N leader if she had submitted herself to the demand, to which Maryam responded, “What [else] could I have done?”
Maryam Nawaz was arrested by NAB authorities on August 8 when she arrived at Lahore’s Kot Lakhpat prison to see her jailed father and former prime minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif.
She was taken into custody in connection with the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case against members of the Sharif family.
