Nawaz Sharif given bail on medical grounds

According to the orders, Nawaz Sharif would not be allowed to leave the country after being released on bail. The court ordered him to submit Rs50.OOO surety bonds. Nawaz Sharif will have to surrender before the law after the expiry of his bail period. The orders said he would be arrested if he failed to surrender before the law. If his health does not improve, Nawaz Sharif can file a new application for extension in his bail period. During the hearing on the bail plea, the Chief Justice asked Sharif’s lawyer to prove that his client’s health is worsening keeping in view the fact that his medical condition dates back to 2003 while he was sentenced in 2018. “You want to bail. We can order his (Nawaz Sharif) treatment from any hospital of his choice in Pakistan,” the JCP was quoted by TV channels as saying. When Khawaja Haris refereed to a letter of Nawaz Sharif’s physicist Dr. Lawrence, the Chief Justice asked him to explain the legal status of the letter. He said how can the letter be produced as evidence when it was not addressed to the court. He said Dr. Lawrence’s letter was written to one Adnan, which is a private communication between two individuals. “Nawaz Sharifs reports say he is suffering from heart disease but we want to know whether his life is in danger. Tell us how is his situation different from his medical history. How is his health worsening,” the CJ was quoted as having told the lawyer. Khawaja Haris said angina attacks can damage Nawaz Sharif’s heart. “All medical boards have said Nawaz Sharif’s angiography is necessary”.
