‘Critically ill’ Nawaz lands in London

Ex-PM Sharif leaves Pakistan for medical treatment in London

Nawaz Sharif likely to leave for London on Tuesday: PML-N

Pakistan's ailing former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday left for London in an air ambulance to seek better medical treatment for multiple diseases, days after a court here allowed him to travel overseas for four weeks after he legally challenged the Imran Khan government's condition of furnishing an indemnity bond worth Rs 700 crore.

Sharif, 69, is accompanied by his younger brother Shehbaz Sharif and his personal physician Adnan Khan.

Local television stations broadcast footage of Sharif boarding the plane which was then shown in the air after takeoff. A team of doctors and paramedics were also on board to cope with any emergency situation.

"Thank God that he has left for the medical treatment he needs urgently", the party's parliamentarian Ahsan Iqbal said on Tuesday.

"The Lahore High Court had announced an interim verdict and as per the precedent there is 99% chance that the Supreme Court will not entertain appeal against the interim verdict", said the minister in a news conference following the federal cabinet meeting in Islamabad on Tuesday.

Elections that followed that year ushered in the government of Imran Khan, who has vowed to root out corruption. Sharif's lawyer, Ashtar Ausaf says Saturday, Nov. 16, 2019 that Lahore High Court gives Sharif four weeks for treatment overseas extendable if he is not fully fit to travel back. Since he was granted bail last month on medical ground, his party and family have been fighting to get his name removed from a travel ban list to allow him to go overseas for treatment.

But Sharif was only allowed to leave after agreeing to a series of conditions preventing him seeking exile, including submitting periodic medical reports notarised by Pakistan's embassy in London, according to court documents.

The government of Sharif's rival Imran Khan had said it would not stand in the way, but last week demanded that he pay a bond of seven billion Pakistani rupees (S$61 million) as a condition of his travel, which Sharif's party immediately rejected. He was scheduled to leave for London on November 10. He also obtained bail in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case, in which he is a suspect, from the LHC.

Nawaz Sharif was sentenced to seven years in prison on corruption charges in December last year.

Subsequently convicted of corruption, Nawaz has consistently denied the accusations, claiming they were politically motivated and blaming the country's generals for directing the judges to bring him down.
