Moreover, in May, shortly after PML-N took over governance following the controversial ouster of Imran Khan, reports emerged that the Interior Ministry headed by PML-N leader Rana Sanaullah had approved VIP security for Maryam Nawaz.
State security was being provided to Maryam Nawaz on the recommendation of the committee of the Interior Ministry. The security squad included personnel from Rangers and Police. According to the media reports, security was to be provided in all the residences of Maryam Nawaz Sharif.

Last month, Maryam Nawaz departed for London just a day after the Lahore High Court (LHC) returned her passport which she had surrendered to obtain bail in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills Case.
During the court hearings, Maryam Nawaz had pleaded that she was in dire need to go abroad to attend to and inquire after her ailing father, requesting the court to direct the deputy registrar (judicial) to return her passport in the interest of justice. After the return of her passport, Maryam Nawaz immediately left for London and has not returned since. With the latest video, speculations are rife that Maryam Nawaz may go to the US next.
