Although the Sharif’s are provided A-class facilities in jail, the father-daughter duo still seem to be unhappy with the arrangements. It is reported that they refused to have food cooked in Adiala jail. Media reports state that Maryam Nawaz spent her first day in jail on juices and biscuits.

It is expected that Maryam Nawaz will be shifted to Sihala rest house within the next 24 hours. The authorities have also beefed up the security at the Sihala rest house.

The interim government is persistently claiming that news reports of non-provisions of facilities to Maryam Nawaz and Nawaz Sharif are false and baseless. They are repeatedly reiterating in media talks that they are provided better class facilities according to their status.

On Wednesday, the interim Information Minister Punjab Ahmed Waqas Riaz informed media that Nawaz Sharif can get a bed mattress, shoes, table, chair, a 21 inch TV, radio, toiletries, newspaper and other such items at his own expense

Previously, Maryam Nawaz was offered better facilities in Adiala jail that she refused.  A letter circulating on social media of Maryam Nawaz read she rejected the offer of better facilities without any pressure and that it is her own decision to settle at the present facilities.

Her refusal came as a shock to the people. Maryam Nawaz arrived in Pakistan adorned in expensive branded accessories which made it hard for people to believe that she would be content in jail without the luxuries.

The recent circulation of the pictures of the luxurious  Avenfield apartment has aggravated suspicion if the members of the former first family will be able to serve their conviction in the simple and dull Adiala jail.
