ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court on Monday rejected Nawaz Sharif’s plea seeking suspension of sentence in Al Azizia verdict on medical grounds.

A high court bench comprising Justice Amir Farooq and Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kiyani ruled that the former prime minister will have to serve the sentence in prison.

The former premier is currently undergoing treatment at the Jinnah Hospital in Lahore, where his room has been declared a sub-jail by the Punjab Home Department.

After an accountability court convicted him in the Al-Azizia corruption reference in December last year, Nawaz was moved to Adiala Jail. Upon request, he was shifted to Kot Lakhpat jail in Punjab’s capital to serve out the seven-year imprisonment sentence.

Days after the conviction, Nawaz’s legal team filed a general writ petition for suspension of the sentence. This was followed by an appeal challenging the verdict and another seeking suspension of the sentence on medical grounds. The bench had reserved the verdict on February 20.

The verdict was announced on Monday to a court-room packed with Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leaders and workers.

The deposed prime minister’s counsel, Khawaja Haris, then sought to withdraw the writ petition and pursue the plea seeking suspension of the sentence on medical grounds.

In an earlier hearing, the bench noted that Nawaz’s medical reports contradicted each others. “Different terminologies created different perception.”

The defence team argued that the atmosphere in the sub-jail caused ‘anxiety’ and appealed that Nawaz should be released from the ‘burden’.

NAB prosecutor Jahanzeb Bharwana maintained that the medical board formed to monitor Nawaz’s health had confirmed that all required medical facilities were available at Jinnah Hospital and Services Hospital.

If nazoo chor deseve bail then all sick prisnors deserve too
Sir G, exactly either we have to run 02 systems in Pakistan; for elite class there should be separate schools/hospital/travelling classes. No jail terms for them against any crime so no courts/jails are required. For common Pakistanis there should be separate system and facilities.
So one country 02 systems and corruption supporter Pakistanis will thrive on that.
