No politics on the health of Nawaz Sharif: Dr.Firdous


ISLAMABAD, Nov 16 (APP): Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting on Saturday said that health of Nawaz Sharif is a humanitarian matter and it should not be made political and legal issue.

She expressed her views while addressing a news conference along with Attorney General Anwar Mansoor Khan.

She said Prime Minister Imran Khan created the facility of medical board for Nawaz Sharif with sincerity.

She said the Prime Minister directed the spokesmen of the government not to give any political statement on the health of Nawaz Sharif. Government facilitated Nawaz Sharif at every level.

Speaking on the occasion, Attorney General said some legal points involved in this issue are crucial. He expressed that NAB law clearly states that sentence of a convict could not be suspended or bailed.

He said when the issue came into the court, the federal government said there should be surety or indemnity for going abroad. He said unfortunately Nawaz Sharif has a precedent of not abiding by the undertakings he made in the past.

He said the court has not rejected the government’s position on indemnity bond.
