LONDON – Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday visited Harley Street Clinic for heart checkup and further cardiac investigation, according to family sources.

Last October, the PTI government had allowed Sharif to leave the country after Islamabad High Court had granted bail to the 70-year-old in the Al-Azizia Steel Mills and Avenfield flats references. The PML-N supremo then left for Britain after suffering from a low platelet count.

Just yesterday, an accountability court in Lahore declared Sharif an absconder and issued non-bailable arrest warrants against him in an illegal plot allotment case involving Jang/Geo Editor-in-Chief Mir Shakilur Rahman.

Judge Asad Ali, who was presiding over the hearing of the case, also ordered confiscation of the PML-N supremo’s properties.
