Sharif family, Rana Sanaullah meet Nawaz at Kot Lakhpat jail
LAHORE: The Sharif family and Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) leader Rana Sanaullah Khan met incarcerated former premier Nawaz Sharif on Thursday (today) at Kot Lakhpat jail.
According to details, Nawaz’s daughter, Maryam Nawaz, and his mother came to visit the convicted PML-N supreme leader today and also brought homemade food for him.
The PML-N’s firebrand leader, Rana Sanaullah, also visited Nawaz earlier today.
While talking to media, Rana Snanullah lambasted that the PML-N was being targeted through various tactics. Criticizing the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government, he said, “The economic situation of the country has been deteriorating since the current government came into power.”
Earlier today, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) has fixed January 21 to hear a petition of deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif, challenging his conviction as well as request for bail in Al-Azizia Steel Mills case.
Sharif has requested that his sentence be suspended until the final verdict in his appeal challenging the case is announced. The former deposed PM is currently incarcerated at the Kot Lakhpat Jail in Lahore serving his seven-year sentence in the Al Azizia case.
The accountability court judge Muhammad Arshad Malik on Dec 24 sentenced Sharif to seven years in prison in the Al-Azizia reference case.
