The NAB on Tuesday submitted an application to the Islamabad High Court for the cancellation of Maryam Nawaz’s bail on the grounds that the PML-N vice-president had misused her bail freedom. It pleaded that Maryam turned the court building into a political theatre every time she came to attend the hearing. 

Her supporters and workers filled the entire courtroom and she turned it into a press club where she gave interviews to reporters and Vloggers. And after that she holds a press conference, the petition added. 

During her press talk, she targets high-ranking officials and her comments against NAB are inciting. After getting bail, it is mandatory to show decorum as per the law, the plea stated. 

The NAB also cited judgments of the Supreme Court in its petition. It said that the apex court in its verdict in the Tariq Bashir case had already explained in which circumstances the bail could be revoked. It said that the bureau had appealed against the suspension of Maryam and her husband Capt Safdar in the Supreme Court. 

The petition stated that the apex court especially mentioned the conduct of the accused. The SC had observed that there was no record of the misuse of the bail freedom by the accused. But now the misconduct of the accused is on the record, the plea added.

It alleged Maryam misused her bail freedom by uttering provocative speeches. When she was summoned on a call-up notice at the Lahore NAB office, her supports attacked the bureau office. 

The petition further alleged that the conduct of the accused also brought the witnesses against them under pressure. 

Maryam and Capt ® Safdar misused their bail freedom so the court is prayed to cancel their bails, the petition concluded.

A two-member bench of the Islamabad High Court would hear the appeals against the convictions in the Avenfield case tomorrow (Wednesday).
