LAHORE: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif was not allowed to meet his physician on Friday, claimed his daughter Maryam Nawaz.

“His (Nawaz) personal physician was made to wait for several hours outside Kot Lakhpat Prison and was eventually denied access today. His urea and creatinine levels must be checked immediately,” she tweeted a letter from a PML-N MPA to the Additional Home Secretary (AHS) Punjab.

The letter also claimed that the former prime minister was suffering from pain in his renal flanks and that his kidney disease was at stage 3.

Maryam said that if access was not granted to his physician to meet the former prime minister, she would stand outside the jail until it the matter was resolved.

“Denying access to his personal physician and his daughter is denial of his fundamental rights,” read the letter. The letter requested the AHS Punjab to grant Maryam and his physician, Dr Adnan, access to Nawaz Sharif.

Nawaz has been in jail since December 2018 following his conviction in Al-Azizia corruption reference in line with the Supreme Court’s July 2017 verdict.
