SC grants bail to Nawaz Sharif on medical grounds for six weeks
Earlier today, the SC granted bail to former premier Nawaz Sharif on medical grounds for six weeks in the Al-Azizia reference.
In addition, the court also suspended the sentence for six weeks. The court also stopped Nawaz Sharif from going abroad. However, he will be free to get treatment from anywhere in the country.
The court also ordered to release him after furnishing two surety bonds worth Rs five million each. The bail has been granted on five grounds.
A three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Asif Saeed Khosa heard the plea. Other judges in the bench included Justice Yahya Afridi and Justice Sajjad Ali Shah.
Khawaja Haris, counsel for Nawaz Sharif, gave the reference of the letter written by Dr Lawrence. The CJ questioned the legal status of the letter.
He stated that they had filed the application for suspension of sentence on medical grounds after the condition of his client deteriorated.
He said that five medical boards had reviewed the condition of Nawaz Sharif and each medical board had recommended his shifting to hospital. “Nawaz Sharif needs to undergo angiography. According to doctors, angiography of Nawaz Sharif is a complex matter. The kidney disease has complicated the angiography of Nawaz Sharif who is also suffering from hypertension, heart, kidney and sugar diseases,” he stated.
Khawaja Haris appealed to the court to grant bail to his client for eight weeks. “Nawaz Sharif’s name is on the ECL and he will go nowhere,” he said.
