Earlier, on the 2nd of February, he had been shifted to the Services Hospital upon the recommendation of a special medical board which had recommended that Nawaz be shifted to a multidisciplinary health facility for checkups. However, Nawaz had refused to undergo any further checkups after only three days at the hospital and had been shifted back to the jail on the 7th of February.But only two days after the former prime minister’s return to the Kot Lakhpat Jail on his own request, his personal physician had, via a letter to the Home Department, requested the government to take into consideration the recommendation of the medical board that Nawaz be shifted to a cardiac facility. As a result, the government had decided to shift Nawaz to Jinnah Hospital.
