Not possible to return to Pakistan and surrender, Nawaz Sharif informs IHC

Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif informed the Islamabad High Court that it was not possible for him to return to Pakistan and surrender. The PML-N supremo informed the court of his inability to return through a review petition against the IHC’s order that had directed him to surrender before the court by September 10.

Nawaz informed the court that the undertaking that was taken from him had included the condition that the government would first check in on his health. He also informed the court that the federal government had not made any efforts in this matter.

The medical reports attached with the application included advice of American cardiologist Dr Fayyaz Shaal, who had said that the former prime minister needs an angiography and a surgery in case it is needed.

Dr Shaal added that the former prime minister should also sit in open spaces. He added that Nawaz Sharif was under extreme stress and it may increase if he returns to Pakistan.
