Accountability Court Islamabad issues notice to Maryam Nawaz for submitting fake trust deed
Islamabad: Accountability Court Islamabad has issued a notice to Maryam Nawaz for submitting fake trust deed in Avenfield reference. Maryam Nawaz is Vice President of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) who appears before an accountability court in the Avenfield case on July 19, 2019.
Accountability court Judge Muhammad Bashir issued notice. The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had submitted a request to the court to start a trial against the PML-N leader for submitting fake documents in the Avenfield case.
Judge Bashir had announced his verdict and convicted Maryam in the London properties case. The judge had sentenced Maryam to seven years in prison. However, the sentence was suspended by the Islamabad High Court.
The Avenfield properties reference was one of three filed by the NAB last year in light of the Supreme Court’s verdict against Nawaz Sharif in the Panama Papers case. The reference pertains to the ownership of the Sharif family’s apartments at Avenfield House, London.
During an explosive press conference on July 6, Maryam claimed Judge Arshad Malik was blackmailed into convicting Nawaz without any evidence and had admitted that. According to her, Judge Malik called PML-N leader Nasir Butt to his house himself to clear his conscience and she showed a video clip from their meeting.
