An accountability court in Lahore has ordered the Punjab government to include PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif’s personal doctors in the medical board set up for his medical check-up, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
The three-page court verdict was issued by Accountability Court’s Admin Judge Jawwadul Hassan.
The verdict says as per the application Shehbaz Sharif is a patient of cancer and brain tumour. “Provision of medical reports to him is his legal right,” the judge added.
The judge ruled under the law Shehbaz Sharif’s application cannot be ignored.
Earlier, during the hearing of the money laundering case, Shehbaz Sharif had submitted an appreciation letter of Chinese envoy in the court on which, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) prosecutor raised objections.
Earlier, the Director General of NAB Lahore had submitted a report in the court through an investigation officer on freezing the properties of Shehbaz Sharif’s wife Nusrat Shahbaz, daughter Rabia Imran and others.
The accountability court had declared Shehbaz Sharif’s wife Nusrat Shahbaz as a proclaimed offender in the money laundering case. Nusrat Shahbaz was declared absconder over her continuous absence in case hearings.
All the accused in the case pleaded not guilty. Shehbaz Sharif, while rejecting allegations of the anti-graft watchdog, said that he was being politically victimized.
