Former PML-N leader and former Prime Minister Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif have returned by air ambulance at 10 am this morning after the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government allowed him to go abroad for treatment once during the bail period. Countries will leave for treatment.
The air ambulance arrived at the Lahore airport to carry them. It is believed that after the Lahore High Court order, the Ministry of Interior on Saturday issued a green signal for their departure.
In a notification issued by the Interior Department, Nawaz Sharif was allowed to go abroad for a time while his name would still be on the Exit Control List, the statement said, adding that the decision was made under 'interim arrangements' under the Lahore High Court order.
Accompanied by Shahbaz Sharif and Dr. Adnan
Giving a statement regarding his departure abroad, PML-N spokesman Maryam Aurangzeb said that Muhammad Nawaz Sharif will leave London at 10 am this morning and party president Mohammad Shahbaz Sharif and personal physician Dr. Adnan will accompany him.
He also said that the ambulance requested for Nawaz Sharif's transfer is equipped with the latest equipment and medical facilities and also has ICU and operation theater.
Maryam Aurangzeb said doctors had detailed inspections before departing for the trip, and steroid supplements and medications were given to prevent the risks during the trip.
He added that the doctors had taken all the medical precautions to ensure that Nawaz Sharif's safe journey to London was assured.
