Nawaz Sharifs back in jail as parole ends

September 20, 2018

Islamabad: Pakistani authorities shifted incarcerated former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Mohammed Safdar back to the Adiala jail.
The trio had been released on parole to attend the last rites of former first lady Begum Kulsoom Nawaz, who died on Sept. 11 at a hospital in London.
Nawaz Sharif had met his mother earlier in the day at the Jati Umra residence of the Sharif family. The three were then escorted to the airport from where they were flown to Adiala via a special plane.
The Punjab Home Ministry said it did not receive any formal request from the Sharif family for parole extension.
Kulsoom Nawaz was laid to rest on Friday at Jati Umra, next to the resting place of her father-in-law Mian Mohammed Sharif and brother-in-law Abbas Sharif. Her funeral prayers, led by religious scholar Maulana Tariq Jamil, were offered at Sharif Medical City, Raiwind. Nawaz Sharif, his son-in-law Mohammed Safdar along with party leaders attended the funeral.
