However, on Thursday Adiala jail authorities refused lawyers to seek access to the duo, as Nawaz and Maryam were allowed to meet Pakistan Muslim League(Nawaz) leadership.

The legal team comprising Nawaz’s counsel Khawaja Haris and Maryam’s lawyer Amjad Pervaiz met the duo and Maryam’s husband Captain (retd) Safdar Awan at the Adiala jail, where all three culprits are currently serving their prison sentence following their conviction in a corruption reference.

“The former premier feels he was not granted the facilities that he should have been given,” Nawaz’s counsel regretted.

Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz and Captain(R) Safdar are serving their sentences in Avenfield verdict given by Accountability Court on July 6th.

Ousted premier Nawaz Sharif was sentenced to a total of 11 years in prison and slapped a £8 million fine while his daughter Maryam was sentenced to eight years with a £2 million fine in the Avenfield corruption reference by an accountability court earlier this month.
