Pakistan government has written to the British authorities, seeking the return of ailing former prime minister Nawaz Sharif after his medical treatment in the UK.
The government’s letter gave details of the cases against Sharif.
The sixty-nine-year-old Sharif, left for London on November 19 in an air ambulance for medical treatment after the Lahore High Court allowed him to travel abroad for four weeks. He has been diagnosed with an immune system disorder.
A two-member bench headed by Justice Ali Baqir Najafi ordered the federal government to remove the former premier and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supreme leader’s name from the Exit Control List (ECL) without placing any conditions.
The bench, which was hearing the plea filed by PML-N seeking unconditional removal of Sharif’s name from ECL, also maintained that the duration of his visit could be extended if his health required.
