Sharif, Maryam Nawaz unlikely to be shifted to guest house

Islamabad, July 21: Former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz are unlikely to be transferred to the Sihala Rest House owing to its lack of proper security arrangements needed for the high-profile prisoners, media reports said on Saturday. The accountability court that convicted Sharif and his daughter in a corruption case had ordered they be sent to Adiala Jail after they were taken into custody at the Lahore airport and produced before it on July 13. However, the Islamabad Chief Commissioner had also ordered shifting of both the father and the daughter and her husband Captain (retd) Safdar Awan, who was already in the Adiala Jail, to the Sihala Rest House situated inside the Sihala Police Training College.
