Maryam Nawaz 'turns down' B-class perks at Adiala jail
ISLAMABAD - The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader and the daughter of disgraced Pakistani prime minister, Maryam Nawaz has reportedly refused to apply for better class facilities at Rawalpindi's Adiala jail.

According to a letter being circulated on social media, Maryam was offered better facilities in the jail but she turned it down to be treated as an ordinary inmate.

“I was offered to apply for better class/class facilities by the Superintendent of the jails, as per rules, that I refuse of my own will. This is purely my own decision, taken without any pressure from anyone,” reads the letter supposedly shared by the jail superintendent.

According to jail officials, separate room with attached bath, mattress, television, newspaper, chair and table are given to prisoners in the B-class category.

Maryam has been sentenced to a total of eight years in prison in the Avenfield reference case pertaining to the Sharif family's luxury apartments in London, UK. She was airlifted to Adiala jail after arriving in Lahore from London, where she had spent a month with her ailing mother.
