Pakistan Opposition Leader, Nawaz Sharif’s Daughter Arrested in Graft Case

ISLAMABAD – Pakistan opposition leader and daughter of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was arrested on Thursday in an alleged fraud case.

Maryam Nawaz was detained in Pakistan by the National Accountability Bureau in the latest string of arrests of leaders from her party.

“NAB has arrested Maryam Nawaz and Yousuf Abbas in Chaudhary sugar mills case,” the organization said in a statement.

The Muslim League-Nawaz’s vice president, Maryam, will undergo a medical examination on Friday and will then appear in a Lahore court for remand.

She is accused of not being able to explain the shares of the sugar mill which is worth millions.

Maryam was sentenced to seven years prison in July 2018 in a London properties case and was out on conditional release while her appeal was being probed.

With Maryam’s arrest the majority of the PML-N leaders are now behind bars and the party alleges the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf party led by Prime Minister Khan of carrying out a campaign against it.

Former Finance Minister Miftah Ismail was taken into custody in a corruption case on Wednesday, while in mid-July former Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi was detained in an LNG contract case.

PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif is also undergoing investigations.

Around mid-June former Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari was also arrested in a money laundering case.
