Pakistan’s former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has been declared an “absconder” by the Imran government for violating the bail requirements by not presenting his medical report from his doctors in London.
Mr Sharif, 70, left for London in November last for treatment after the Lahore High Court allowed him to go abroad on medical grounds for four weeks.
According to Mr Sharif’s physician, the three-time Prime Minister of Pakistan is suffering from complex multi-vessel coronary artery disease and substantial ischemic and threatened myocardium for which he is due to undergo surgery.
The Pakistani government on Tuesday decided not to extend the bail of Nawaz Sharif and declared him an “absconder” for violating the bail requirements by not presenting his medical report before a board formed on the order of the Islamabad High Court.
“From today Nawaz Sharif is an absconder according to the law of land and if he does not return to the country he will be declared a proclaimed offender,” Mr Awan said.
