Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shahbaz Sharif has registered a request in the Islamabad High Court (IHC) asking for the postponement of his brother’s verdict in the Al-Azizia case.
Nawaz Sharif, who is currently finishing his seven-year custody in a corruption case, was shifted to Lahore Services Hospital after his health worsened on Monday night. His doctors said that his platelet count is disapprovingly low.
On Thursday, Shahbaz moves toward the court on the matter.
Former Prime Minister Nawaz sharif should be freed on bail because he isn’t well, the request says. There is a serious danger to Nawaz’s life because of his illness, it read. I am the only member of the Sharif family that is currently not in prison, Shahbaz says in his request. Nawaz is my elder brother and I deliberate him a fatherly figure, request added.
Shahbaz said that his brother should be allowed to pursue treatment wherever he wants to be in Pakistan or any other country.
Nawaz’s medical information has acquiesced alongside the petition too. The National Accountability Bureau chairman and Lahore Director-General have been named as accused.
