Maryam Nawaz met Nawaz Sharif in prison
28 December, 2018
Maryam Nawaz said on Thursday that she met her father Nawaz Sharif in prison on Thursday and the former premier was in “high spirits” there. “I went to see Mian Nawaz Sharif at Kot Lakhpat jail today. He was Masha’Allah in high spirits,” the former first daughter said in her tweet.
The former premier however asked for his wife’s photos, she said.
“I asked him if he needed anything from home and he said, ‘Yes, Kalsoom’s photos’,” Maryam added.
Earlier in the day, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders and his relatives met Nawaz at the prison. Maryam and Nawaz’s nephew Hamza Shehbaz were among those who visited him at the jail.
PML-N leaders Sardar Ayaz Sadiq, Ahsan Iqbal and Rana Tanvir also visited the prison to meet the party supremo.
Sadiq, while talking to reporters outside the jail, expressed the party’s reservations over the judgement. He said that a bail application would be moved soon and expressed his hope that they would secure bail for Nawaz Sharif.
He claimed that the decision did not specify financial corruption done by Nawaz, and commended the former premier for honouring the supremacy of law.
“The three-time prime minister had been appearing before a joint investigation team. There is no such precedent in the past, nor would be in the future,” he added.
