LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Maryam Nawaz has vowed to stand outside Kot Lakhpat jail until doctors are granted access to treat her father, former prime minister Nawaz Sharif who is serving a seven-year term in a corruption reference.
The PML-N leader, in a Twitter post on Friday, said Nawaz’s kidney disease is at stage three and doctors suspect the pain to be of renal origin. “His Urea & Creatinine levels MUST be checked. His doctor who I sent to examine MNS was made to wait 2 hrs outside jail, was not allowed in & sent back,” she wrote.
“If his renal functions are not checked for any further deterioration & if his doctor & I are not allowed access to him, I will go and stand outside the jail tomorrow till the access is granted,” she added. The former first daughter further tweeted a picture of the written request sent to the Home Department for Nawaz's doctor to be granted access to him.
