Nawaz's health is deteriorating, says lawyer
The Islamabad High Court has asked for NAB to submit its reply on the sentence suspension plea filed by former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.
Nawaz filed the petition on May 20 seeking suspension of his sentence on the basis of his deteriorating health in the Al Azizia Steel Mills case. The three-time former premier was jailed at Lahore’s Kot Lakhpat Jail after an accountability court sentenced him to seven years after convicting him.
The Kot Lakpat superintendent was issued a notice too.
Nawaz’s lawyer said that his health has worsened.
Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kiyani asked if Nawaz is still being treated or not.
He is being treated but his condition has worsened, remarked Nawaz’s lawyer.
The case has been adjourned for two weeks.
NAB has asked for the court to overturn Nawaz’s acquittal in the Flagship reference too. It submitted a petition on Tuesday.
The petition says that Nawaz invested in his children’s companies. His sons, Hussain and Hassan, had no known sources of income and they were under the guardianship of their father, according to it.
The case will be next heard on June 25.
