Maryam Nawaz cries foul play over Father's health issue

LAHORE: Maryam Nawaz, daughter of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif, Monday lamented that it had been five days that she did not have any access to her father.

The former first daughter said she was waiting for permission to meet her father, who has been incarcerated at Kot Lakhpat jail.

Nawaz, thrice the prime minister of Pakistan, has been in jail since December 2018 following his conviction in a corruption reference in line with the Supreme Court’s July 2017 verdict.

Maryam said in her tweet that her father was unwell, adding that not even his personal physician had been allowed to see him.

“A humble reminder: Force of retribution never sleeps,” she added.

In another tweet, the former first daughter said there was no other way to inquire about her father’s well-being.

“I am extremely worried because he had said that if, God forbid, something happened, he would not tell anyone,” she said, adding that she had no knowledge of her Nawaz’s condition.

Maryam further requested the masses to remember her father in prayers.
