Earlier today, Supreme Court of Pakistan has granted bail to former prime minister Nawaz Sharif for six weeks which was filed on medical-grounds in the infamous Al-Azizia corruption reference.
According to details, a three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Justice Asif Saeed Khosa heard Nawaz’s petition against Islamabad High Court’s verdict dismissing his on medical grounds in the Al-Azizia reference.
The Top court in its judgment, however, has not allowed Mian Nawaz Sharif to travel abroad for his medical treatment.
As the hearing went underway, a copy of Doctor Lawrence’s letter on Nawaz Sharif’s health was presented before the Apex court.
To this, Chief Justice remarked that there was no proof that the submitted letter is authentic.
Chief Justice maintained that the letter was written by a man named Adnan and seems as if it was written by ‘one private individual to another’.
Nawaz Sharif’s counsel Khawaja Haris replied that the only purpose of presenting the letter before the court was to apprise that Nawaz was treated by doctors when his health deteriorated.
The court, in its judgment, stated that Nawaz Sharif will have to give himself into custody after completion of the granted bail.
If not brought back in custody within the prescribed duration, Nawaz Sharif will be arrested, maintained the Apex court’s judge-bench.
Moreover, the PML-N Supremo has been ordered to submit two bail bonds, each of Rs5 million.
Supreme Court also put two individuals as personal guarantors if Nawaz Sharif fails to comply with the court’s orders.
On this occasion, PML-N stalwarts and workers were witnessed celebrating the decision of the top court, granting six-week bail to their party supremo Mian Nawaz Sharif.
