Today, the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif got a six months bail to receive medical treatment within the country. The former PM was released from jail after three months.
The 69-year-old was sentenced in the Kot Lakhpat jail in Lahore since December last year after he was given seven-year imprisonment in the Al-Azizia Steel Mills graft case.
According to his daughter Maryam Nawaz, he has suffered four angina attacks in recent weeks. A three-member bench was formed in the Supreme Court headed by Chief Justice Asif Saeed Khosa. They accepted the request of Sharif and allowed him for bail. When he came out of jail his supporters and party workers were eagerly waiting for him outside the jail and they showered his car with flowers.
Some followed him to his residence in the Jati Umra Raiwind area in Lahore where he was welcomed by his family and PML-N leaders.
PML-N president Shahbaz Sharif thanked the court for “meeting the merits of justice”.
“We thank the SC for considering the gravity of the situation in the light of the medical reports of PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif. We also thank the nation and workers of the PMLN whose prayers had made this day possible,” he said.
Eventually, his family has claimed that Sharif, whose health condition is serious, was not getting adequate treatment under the government of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
In 2017, three corruption cases were filed against the Sharif family which are Avenfield properties, Flagship investment, and Al-Azizia steel mills.
