The government of Pakistan’s Punjab province has asked former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to submit fresh medical reports within three days in relation to a bail plea filed by him.
Earlier this month, Punjab Health Minister Yasmin Rashid had said that the relief granted to the former leader for medical treatment abroad had expired and he should submit an updated report regarding his health to the provincial authorities, The News International said in a report on Wednesday.
On December 25, 2019, Sharif’s legal team had submitted a report to authorities in Pakistan detailing the health of the former premier and asked the court to extend his bail on medical grounds.
“The report does not mention anything new related to the treatment being accorded to Nawaz Sharif,” Rashid told reporters.
“We have written to the (Punjab) Home Department that we cannot give any opinion on the report,” she added.
In the letter written to the former premier, the Punjab Home Department directed Sharif to submit updated medical reports to the department within three days.
“Medical reports should be submitted so the concerned officials can check and verify them,” the letter read.
“The reports submitted by the former premier earlier have been scrutinized already. A final decision regarding them is yet to be made because the documentation attached with the reports is incomplete.
“His (Sharif’s) hematological and bio-chemical reports, especially platelet count, have not been provided. The board would like to know his CBC, kidney functions, and bone marrow studies,” the home Department added.
