LAHORE (HRNW) – Accountability court on Friday has conducted hearing on Chaudhry Sugar Mills reference and approved exemption plea of former Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif as he is in London on bail for medical treatment.
During the hearing, Nawaz Sharif’s fresh medical reports were also presented.
On Oct. 29, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) had suspended the sentence of former premier Nawaz Sharif on medical grounds for eight weeks in the Al-Azizia reference case. The court had ordered him to submit two surety bonds of Rs2 million each to the court for securing his release.
A plea for bail had been filed by PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif for his brother Nawaz, who was under treatment at Lahore’s Services Hospital. The court further announced that for an extension in bail, the Punjab government should be approached.
