PML-N moves top court to declare Sharif family residence as sub-jail



LAHORE, July 23 (TNS): Amid Nawaz Sharif’s sickness reports, petition requesting to declare the residences of deposed prime minister, daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Safdar as sub-jails was submitted in the Supreme Court’s Lahore Registry on Monday.

The petition was submitted by Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz’s (PML-N) Barrister Zafarullah Khan and stated that as the corruption trial against Nawaz is still pending, his residence can be declared a sub-jail.

Hours after a government constituted team of doctors from the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) conducted a medical check-up of Nawaz at Adiala jail, President Mamnoon Hussain called interim Prime Minister Nasirul Mulk to ensure that the former premier receives adequate medical treatment.

The PIMS team, led by Dr Shaji Siddiqui and comprising Dr Naeem Mulk, Dr Anisa and Dr Amir Maqbool was tasked with re-examining Nawaz’s medical reports and conducting a fresh check-up.While the government reportedly plans to move Nawaz to PIMS, he has requested to be shifted to Rawalpindi Institute of Cardiology (RIC).
