A petition seeking suspension of the sentence of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in Al Aziza reference case is turned down by the Islamabad High Court (IHC).
According to the details, a two-member bench of IHC comprising Justice Amir Farooq and Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani announced the judgment today.
During today’s hearing, Khawaja Haris Ahmed informed the court that Nawaz Sharif is seeking suspension of sentence on medical grounds. He argued that “more than 60 per cent health condition of the former premier is in danger” and that he needs further treatment.
Justice Kiyani asked that if doctors had declared Sharif’s cure was not possible in the country. The counsel replied in the affirmative, adding that the former premier’s health condition was deteriorating day by day.
Khawaja Haris replied that the former premier was suffering from diabetes and heart issues. He added that Sharif needs an attendant round the clock to ensure that his blood sugar level remains normal.
