Nawaz Sharif applies for extended bail to receive treatment overseas

Former Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif has applied for extended bail so that he may seek medical treatment abroad.

Sharif was ousted following corruption revelations and was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment.

He is currently four weeks into a six-week bail which does not allow him to leave the country.

His new petition contends that the only feasible option available to Sharif, who is claimed to be suffering from a heart condition, was to be treated by the same medical practitioners who were looking after him earlier in the United Kingdom.

The application read that “unforgivable damage will occur if the bail is not extended.”
