Leaders of PML-N likely to meet Nawaz, Maryam in Adiala Jail today

RAWALPINDI: Leaders of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) are likely to reach Adiala Jail to meet ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz today (Thursday).


According to details, Nawaz Sharif has been given a place for walking in the jail while he has also been provided with cook and doctor.


Meanwhile, Lahore High Court (LHC) has recommended forming larger bench over the petition filed against the convictions of ousted premier Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz.


On July 13, Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz were arrested and shifted to jail after they landed at Lahore’s Allama Iqbal International Airport.


Nawaz was sentenced to 11 years in prison by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) court over his family’s purchase of luxury apartments in London, whereas, his daughter Maryam was sentenced to seven years in prison.


The ex-premier’s son-in-law was also sent to jail for one-year on the same charge.


The Avenfield reference is one of the three corruption references, filed by the National Accountability Bureau(NAB) on orders of the Supreme Court of Pakistan (SCP), which disqualified Nawaz Sharif, ousting him from premiership and finding him guilty in the Panama Paper case verdict.


The verdict came at a time when Nawaz Sharif and daughter Maryam Nawaz Sharif were in London to see Begum Kulsom Nawaz Sharif who has been undergoing treatment for cancer.
