  • Nawaz tells IHC he cannot return and surrender



    September 9, 2020


    P


    Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif told the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Wednesday that it was not possible for him to come before the court and surrender himself.
    The PML-N supremo informed the IHC of his inability to return through a review petition filed today against the court's earlier order that had directed him to surrender before it by September 10.
    The petition was filed by Nawaz's lawyers, Khawaja Harris and Munawar Iqbal. The application includes recent medical reports and requests the court to go ahead with the hearings in the presence of the deposed prime minister's counsels.
    Nawaz informed the court that the undertaking that was taken from him had included the condition that the government would first check in on his health. He also informed the court that the federal government had not made any efforts in this matter.
    “The federal government does not have any authentic information about my health,” Nawaz has claimed in his petition. He also added that the doctors have not issued any certificates that would declare him “fit” to return home.
    US cardiologist advises against travelling
    The medical reports attached with the application also included advice of American cardiologist Dr Fayyaz Shaal.
    The US doctor has said that the former prime minister needs an angiography and a surgery in case it is needed.
    “Nawaz Sharif should not travel at all in this situation,” suggested the doctor. He added that he agrees with the former prime minister’s physician Dr Lawrence in London.
    The cardiologist said that the PML-N supremo should not return to Pakistan till his angiography is done in the UK, adding that travelling amid the coronavirus pandemic is also dangerous.
    Dr Shaal added that the former prime minister should also sit in open spaces. He added that Nawaz Sharif was under extreme stress and it may increase if he returns to Pakistan.
    Nawaz told to appear by Sept 10
    The review plea has been filed a day before the deadline given to Nawaz to surrender before the court.
    The IHC had granted Nawaz an "opportunity" to surrender and present himself before the court by September 10.
    Last week, a two-member bench of the IHC comprising Justice Aamer Farooq and Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani had issued the orders while hearing the appeals filed by NAB against the former prime minister's acquittal in the Flagship reference as well as appeals against his conviction in the Al-Azizia reference.
    "We are not declaring Nawaz Sharif an absconder," Justice Amir Farooq had observed. "We are giving him an opportunity to surrender before the court."
    Nawaz's attorney Khawaja Haris had argued before the court that his client's bail had been approved after his sentence in the Avenfield Apartments reference had been suspended.
    He said that the PML-N supremo had been granted conditional bail in the Flagship reference.
    "Nawaz Sharif's current status is that he is not out on bail," said Haris. "This is the legal position that he is out on the basis of seeking medical treatment abroad and not on bail."
    Justice Farooq responded by saying that Nawaz was granted conditional bail for a specific time. Harris replied that Nawaz's medical reports, which stated that he was ill, were provided to the Punjab government.
    "Even then, Nawaz's request for the bail extension was rejected," he said.
    In response to the bench's question, Haris replied that Nawaz's appeal for bail extension was rejected by the Punjab government on February 27.
    The court then wondered whether the PML-N leader's sentence in the Al-Azizia reference ended after the Lahore High Court's order to the government to take off Nawaz's name from the ECL?
    "The IHC suspended Nawaz's sentence in the Al-Azizia reference for a short period. After the LHC's verdict, can the IHC's order be superseded," asked the court.
    "It's not like Nawaz Sharif does not want to surrender before the court," said Haris.
    The court said that the matter of the ECL was being heard by the LHC whereas the IHC was concerned with the issue of the suspension in sentence and bail.

Whats the point? Even if he does return & is jailed once again (for perhaps 5th or 6th time already LOL!)... How do we guarantee he doesn't get released again?

What good our judiciary brings to the table? We can't hang terrorists who killed thousands of innocents, we can't hang rapists, we can't punish corrupts, we can't touch riches.

Wonder what do we have all these judges and courts for? We can save all that money and feed the poor people instead. At least it would spare millions from going to courts in the false hope of getting justice.

kia ala nizam hai Pakistan, doulat ho kesi ka qatal karo or lavahiqeen ko paisay do or bahir a jao.
mulk kay paisay looto or bahir chalay jao or jab pakray jao to kaho meray sinay mein raaz hai daro us din say
40 caror boundry wall per lagay punjab gov kay 1500 daily police men pehra daitay thay..

Rahmatain hain teri aghiyar kay kashano per
Barq girti hai to bicharay musalmano per

You do know that in strict legal terms, there's not money written directly under his name for corruption?

The more government targets him alone, the more political the cases will become. Nawaz is like a gallay me phansi haddi.

Why is the Government not confiscating this thieves assets in Pakistan? The guy still owes the $10M fine issues in one of the sentences and I'm sure his house in Raiwind is worth around that so take it and sell it off to pay the fine.

Sharif was and is the establishment's man. The day PTI government confiscates his Raiwind palace will be their last day in office. They helped him escape because seeing him in misery in jail was like pushing daggers through the heart of the establishment.

PTI may do press conferences and threaten to take action but they can't do any thing against blue eyed boy of the establishment

winning 90% of central Punjab votes is no small feat, PMLN has always played politics and have always won at it..the intention as never to lawyer up but to do politics, 2023 will decide whether he was right or wrong but if historical precedence is that he will be back on his seat in 2023 since PPPP, JUI and PMLN will fight that election together..
it seems pakistan is moving from two party system (PPPP PMLN) to one party system (PMLN-PPP alliance)
