Lahore High Court (LHC) on Tuesday (July 9) allowed Dr. Adnan to meet former Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif at Kot Lakhpat jail “under the supervision of prison’s consultant. LHC heard on a plea filed by Nawaz’s personal physician Dr. Adnan seeking meeting with the former twice a week.
Department of Interior Affairs submitted a medical report to the court. The lawyer representing government explained that doctors are available 24/7 at Kot Lakhpat jail to look after Nawaz Sharif. “Nawaz has himself not submitted a single plea seeking his treatment to be carried out by his very personal physician. Compared to other prisoners, Nawaz Sharif is being looked after in a better wat”, the lawyer said.
The lawyer added that Dr. Adnan indulges with politics by talking to newsmen and giving political comments. “Adnan can be allowed to meet Nawaz Sharif but the call-up must take place in presence of consultants at Kot Lakhpat prison and if Dr. Adnan will not issue political statements outside prison after concluding the meeting”, the government lawyer emphasized.
After hearing arguments of respondents in the case, the high court then permitted Dr. Adnan to meet incarcerated premier when later’s family comes to visit him. The court also directed the physician not to involve in politics.
