Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif filed another plea with the Islamabad High Court on Wednesday.
He has requested permission to submit additional documents in his bail petition on medical grounds in the Al Azizia reference.
In his petition, the former prime minister stated that he be allowed to submit verified medical reports by foreign doctors for dispensation of justice.
A division bench comprising Justice Aamir Farooq and Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani will heard the case.
In the last hearing, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had submitted its detailed reply in the court.
NAB requested the IHC to throw out a petition filed by Nawaz seeking his release from prison on medical grounds.
The accountability watchdog had argued that his health is not critical. According to his medical reports, his life is not at risk, NAB’s reply read.
NAB has argued that his request is not maintainable and should therefore be rejected.
Nawaz, a three-time former premier, is currently incarcerated at the Kot Lakhpat Jail in Lahore. He was sentenced to seven years in the Al Azizia Steel Mills reference in December.
He has approached the courts seeking a suspension of sentence on medical grounds. Simply put, he says he is too sick to be in jail and his life is in danger because he doesn’t have access to medical care.
