Maryam Nawaz met on Saturday her father in Lahore’s Kot Lakhpat jail and said that former PM Nawaz Sharif’s kidney disease is at stage three.

In a tweet, Maryam Nawaz said that the prison authorities will get Mr Sharif examined from a specialist doctor today (Saturday evening).

“Presence of MNS’s  personal physician during the examination is vital,” she said, adding that they have submitted a written request to the Punjab home office.

Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif was sent to Kot Lakhpat jail on December 25 last year after an accountability court sentenced him to seven years in jail in the Al Azizia corruption reference on December 24.
