The federal government has asked the Punjab government to provide it with experts views on the medical reports submitted by PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif to seek his way out of the country, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

Sources informed on Wednesday that in the light of yesterday’s decision of the federal cabinet, the attorney general office wrote a letter to the Punjab government. 

In its epistle, the AG office requested the provincial government on behalf of the federal government to seek experts’ views on the medical reports of Nawaz Sharif

Sources were of the view that after getting the assessment of experts on medical reports, the government would chalk out a strategy regarding Nawaz’ repatriation. 

If the medical experts declare Nawaz’s health satisfactory, then the government will contact his current physicians.

Yesterday, while giving briefing to media after the cabinet meeting, Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry said that the government would file a petition in the Lahore High Court against PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif for giving a false undertaking pertaining to bringing party’s supremo Nawaz Sharif back to the country after completion of his medical treatment abroad. 

The minister said the government would ask the attorney general to submit a petition to the Lahore High Court in this regard. He said Nawaz fled the country after staging a drama of his illness and Shehbaz was involved in this fraud too by becoming his guarantor. 

The minister expressed his amazement that after a passage of 17 months, the PML-N supremo still had not completed his medical treatment. He divulged that the Pakistan High Commission in the UK contacted with the Sharif family but they refused to share Nawaz’s medical report with it. He further said that the current medical reports of Nawaz Sharif did not match with the previous reports.
