Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that he will “not allow anyone to take the law into their own hands” during PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz’s appearance at the National Accountability Bureau’s Lahore chapter tomorrow.
Maryam has been summoned by NAB on March 26 in connection with the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case, as well as the purchase of land in Raiwind.
The Ministry of Interior on Tuesday approved a request by the anti-corruption watchdog to declare their Lahore office a “red zone” and for security to be provided to the bureau on March 25 and 26.
NAB had cited fears of a possible attack on its building the day the PML-N leader is expected to appear.
The Pakistan Democratic Movement has pledged its support to the Maryam, with the chief of the alliance, Maulana Fazlur Rehman, declaring that supporters numbering in the “hundreds of thousands” will accompany the PML-N leader.
