As per details, Maryam and her cousin Yousuf Abbas, who is also accused in the case, were brought to an accountability court of Lahore as their judicial remands expired on Wednesday. The accountability court extended the judicial remand of both the accused for another 14 days. As the hearing went underway, accountability judge Jawwad-ul-Hasan Chaudhry expressed displeasure over people taking selfies with Maryam Nawaz inside the courtroom. He ordered everyone to switch off their phones. Later, Maryam’s legal counsels sought permission to meet her in the court’s side room, to which, the accountability judge asked the lawyers to ensure the presence of no irrelevant person during the meeting. However, irrelevant persons did make their way to the room. Judge Jawwad-ul-Hasan Chaudhry was extremely furious over the incident, a private television channel reported.

The NAB officials informed the court regarding the preparation of the reference against Maryam Nawaz in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case. On the occasion, a large contingent of female police officers was deployed around the judicial complex. As per Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Accountability Shahzad Akbar, the Sharif family had used Chaudhry Sugar Mills for money laundering and illegal transfer of its shares.
