Maryam meets father Nawaz at Kot Lakphat

LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz on Thursday held meeting with her father and former Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif at Kot Lakhpat Jail, wherein she informed him about the party affairs.

According to details, the PML-N leader arrived at the jail and inquired about the health of Nawaz.

It is to be mentioned here that PML-N President and Opposition Leader in National Assembly (NA) Shehbaz Sharif has also been scheduled to meet Nawaz Sharif.

During the meeting, the former Punjab chief minister will discuss the ongoing political situation in the country with his brother.

Meanwhile, several PML-N workers and leaders were present outside the jail to express solidarity with their leader.

Earlier, Lahore High Court (LHC) had issued a notice to Punjab home secretary on a petition of Maryam Nawaz seeking permission to meet her father at least twice a week, and allowed former premier’s personal doctor Adnan to examine his health in the jail.

On May 8, PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif returned Kot Lakhpat Jail in a rally of his party workers and leaders after the expiry of six-week bail in a corruption case.

He was released from jail on March 27 on medical grounds after the apex court suspended his sentence in the Al-Azizia reference and granted him bail for six weeks.

The PML-N supreme leader was sentenced to seven years in prison and was fined Rs1.5 billion and $25 million in the Al-Azizia corruption reference by an accountability court on December 24, 2018. However, he was acquitted in another reference related to Flagship Investments.
