The transfer of Nawaz Sharif to Sharif Medical City delayed his application
Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who had been released earlier on his request from the Lahore’s Services Institute of Medical Sciences (SIMS), changed his mind on Tuesday night and asked to spend the night at the hospital, a member of the medical board said.
Nawaz was to be transferred to Sharif Medical City Hospital, but since his daughter Maryam Nawaz’s release orders could not be obtained from the Lahore High Court, the former Prime Minister decided to delay his departure from the hospital so that the two could leave together.
Maryam’s bail, Maryam Nawaz, has also been undergoing treatment at the Services Hospital since October 23, a day after her father’s admission.
In the case of Chaudhry Sugar Mills, she is waiting for her release on bail after the LHC granted her request a day earlier.
The leader of PML-N was ordered to issue two security bonds, each worth Rs10 million, and to deposit and surrender an additional Rs70 million.
Although her husband retired Captain Mohammad Safdar submitted the additional Rs70 million together with her passport to the court, Maryam’s lawyers were late in completing the paperwork and the safety bonds could not be submitted within the working hours of the trial.
Discharge slip issued
Nawaz’s discharge slip was released on Tuesday evening by the hospital after a medical check-up had been completed. An ambulance had arrived to evacuate the former Premier from Sharif Medical City Hospital. The former Prime Minister’s PML-N president and friend, Shehbaz Sharif, also came to review the arrangements made.
When Nawaz later decided to stay in the hospital until the release of Maryam was secured, the ambulance was returned. Dr. Ayaz said the former prime minister expressed a desire to move to Sharif Medical City Hospital on his own.
The doctor had previously informed the media that there are not available in Pakistan certain medical tests — including a genetic test — recommended for Nawaz.
