Islamabad: Former Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif left for London via air ambulance from Lahore at around 11:30 am on Tuesday. According to the information, along with Nawaz Sharif, his brother PML-N party president Shahbaz Sharif and doctors will also be present in this air ambulance. The Islamabad High Court has granted 8 weeks' bail to Nawaz Sharif due to his constantly declining health and he is permitted to go to London and get his treatment.
Nawaz Sharif has been approved for a 4-week trip abroad. However, due to the recommendation of doctors, this period can also be extended later. Earlier, Maryam Nawaz also sought bail for Nawaz Sharif when his doctor Adnan Khan expressed concern about Nawaz's deteriorating health.
Nawaz Sharif was scheduled to leave for London earlier on Sunday, but his ticket was cancelled due to his name in the Exit Control List (ECL), after which he was scheduled to go to London on Tuesday. Nawaz Sharif has been in jail for some time in the Al-Azizia Mills corruption case. Nawaz's treatment is currently underway at his Lahore residence.
