A day after, the picture of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s supreme leader, Nawaz Sharif, in which he along with some of his family members are enjoying tea at café in London, went viral on social media, the Punjab government on Tuesday (Jan 14) rejected the Nawaz’s request of bail extension. The Punjab government has raised several objections to a medical report attached with an appeal of former premier Nawaz Sharif.
Thereby, the government has opposed stay of Mr Sharif in London for medical treatment, and the home department has ordered the former premier to send his latest medical report.
Addressing a press conference in Lahore, Punjab Health Minister Dr.Yasmin Rashid said that a special medical board looking at Nawaz’s health had met on January 3 and after reviewing all the reports submitted by Nawaz’s team, they had said the reports had not shared any new information or any new investigation.
Rashid said that Nawaz’s physician in London, David R Lawrence, had sent a letter which was “very similar” to the summary issued by the government regarding the former premier’s health.
“On the one hand, you say he is in a very critical condition […] then tell us is it a part of it that you are socialising? Is it a part of the treatment?” “Where will she take care of him? At a restaurant? You take care of a person who is bedridden, which he is not, according to them, he was moving around.”
