Lahore (December 5, 2017): Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif departed for London from Allama Iqbal International Airport today for tending to his ailing wife who is undergoing treatment for throat cancer in London.
The former prime minister and his daughter Maryam Nawaz left for UK via Doha in a private airline flight.
Earlier, the accountability court on Monday accepted the request of ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif seeking change in his period of exemption from personal appearance, whereas dismissed the same plea by his daughter Maryam Nawaz.
Judge Muhammad Bashir while deciding the pending pleas of Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz allowed exemption to Nawaz Sharif from personal appearance from December 5 to December 12. However, he dismissed the same plea of Maryam Nawaz, who sought change in her exemption period already granted to her.
The court ruled that the exemption period from November 15 to December 15 earlier granted to her already held the field.
