Maryam’s request to ‘become a teacher in jail’ rejected
RAWALPINDI: Authorities in the Adiala Jail have turned down a request of Maryam Nawaz, daughter of imprisoned former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, to teach inmates in the Jail.
The request of Maryam Nawaz was turned down because she is kept in a solitary confinement and under the prison rules she cannot interact with other inmates.
Meanwhile, a legal team of Sharifs was allowed to meet the former premier and his daughter in the jail couple of days ago.
It is also reported that son-in-law of Mr. Sharif, Capt (retd) Safdar is not in solitary confinement and has been kept with former additional district and sessions judge Raja Khurram Ali Khan who along with his wife was convicted in the housemaid torture case.
On July 21, public went into frenzy after a tweet was posted from Maryam Nawaz’s verified Twitter account for the first time since her incarceration in the Avenfield case.
The tweet shared a couplet by one of Urdu’s greatest poets Faiz Ahmed Faiz. It’s not yet confirmed whether Ms Nawaz personally tweeted it or somebody from her social media account posted it to push the party narrative.
An accountability court on July 6 handed Nawaz Sharif 10 years in jail for owning assets beyond income in the Avenfield properties corruption reference. The case was filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
His daughter Maryam Nawaz was given seven years for abetment, and her husband Captain (retd) Safdar was given one year for non-cooperating with the anti-graft authority.
Captain (retd) Safdar was arrested on Sunday, July 8 while Maryam Nawaz and Nawaz Sharif were taken into custody and shifted to Jail after they returned home on July 13, Friday.
