LONDON: Hussain Nawaz Sharif on Saturday deplored the Punjab jail authorities for failing to provide a bed to his father Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, a three-time former prime minister.
“I am told that my father was not given a bed to sleep on and the bathroom was extremely dirty probably not cleaned for ages,” he tweeted. “There’s no precedence of treating people’s representatives with dignity in this country but these are basic rights withdrawal of which constitutes torture,” he said.
