New developments reported from Lahore High Court over former PM Nawaz Sharif health issue

ISLAMABAD: New developments reported from Lahore High Court over former PM Nawaz Sharif health issue.

The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Monday directed the government to furnish comments in light of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s medical reports.

A bench of the high court was hearing a petition moved by the PML-N supreme leader link who was granted four-week permission to travel to London for medical treatment without furnishing an indemnity bond.

Over the course of the hearing, the LHC bench recalled the former premier was allowed to go abroad for four weeks on the condition that he will return home after he is out and about.

The court asked the government to go through his medical reports and inform the judges about its standpoint.

A state counsel contended Nawaz Sharif link should have moved a fresh plea if he intends to prolong his London stay.

At this, the bench remarked the government could file a petition for bringing him back.

The court quoted the ex-premier’s lawyers as saying that he is not yet fit enought to travel back to the country.

The bench directed the government to decide whether it wants to file a petition for return of Nawaz Sharif or not after going through his medical reports.

Last week, the reports link prepared by cardiac consultant Surgeon David Lawrence were submitted to the LHC.
