Sharif, daughter likely to be shifted to a rest house

Prime News, International (Islamabad), July 19:- Former Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz are likely to be shifted from Adiala jail in Rawalpindi to the rest house of Sihala Police Training College in Islamabad.

Geo TV quoted sources as saying that all arrangements have been made to move the father-daughter duo to Sihala rest house. The Islamabad chief commissioner had earlier declared the rest house as a sub-jail to keep them.

On July 6, Sharif and Maryam were convicted in the Avenfield reference case by the Accountability Court.

While Sharif was given ten years of imprisonment and slapped with a fine of eight million pounds, Maryam was awarded eight years in jail and fined two million pounds. Mr Nawaz’s son-in-law Captain (Retired) Muhammad Safdar was given a one-year sentence without any fine. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
