Nawaz never refused medical treatment nor sought to travel abroad: Abbasi

Former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said on Tuesday that it was on record that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz.He made the comment while speaking to the media after the Supreme Court suspended Nawaz’s sentence on medical grounds for six weeks.

Nawaz, who is currently imprisoned at Kot Lakhpat Jail in Lahore, was awarded a seven-year imprisonment sentence by an accountability court in the Al Azizia/ Hill Metal Establishment corruption reference filed by the National Accountability Bureau in light of the top court’s Panamagate judgment.An apex court bench led by Chief Justice of Pakistan Azmat Saeed Khosa heard an appeal submitted by Nawaz’s counsel Khawaja Haris, seeking suspension of sentence for eight weeks on medical grounds.The bench granted a six-week suspension and allowed Nawaz to receive treatment from his personal physician but restricted him from travelling abroad.Dismissing reports that Nawaz had refused treatment in jail, Abbasi said the top court had acknowledged that the three-time premier neither refused treatment nor asked to be treated in London.

It is on record now that Nawaz never refused medical treatment nor did he seek to travel abroad. The SC observed that the doctors failed to concur on how and where Nawaz should be treated.”SC suspends Nawazs prison sentence on medical groundsHe blamed the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) for creating a false perception that Nawaz had refused to be treated locally and wanted to travel abroad. “Nawaz was given relief by the top court.We are confident his appeal against the verdict will also be accepted.”He critcised the federal ministers for playing politics on a matter concerning a person’s health.
