London Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif will return to Pakistan on June 8 sources informed Geo News on Tuesday.
According to sources, Shahbaz Sharif will have a medical examination in London on June 7 following which he is expected to return to Pakistan the next day. Shahbaz Sharif is hopeful that doctors will clear him for travel after his examination.
The PML-N president upon arrival in Pakistan will meet his brother Nawaz Sharif and mother. He will also hold a meeting with PML-N leaders on the situation in the country.
Shahbaz Sharif was arrested in the Ashiana Housing case on October 5, 2018, and released on bail in February by the Lahore High Court. Sharif’s name was also removed from the exit control list.
Spokesperson of the Sharif family, Atta Tarrar, who was representing Shehbaz Sharif in the absence of his lawyer on Tuesday, gave June 11 as the date for Shehbaz’s return.
National Accountability Bureau (NAB) prosecutor Waris Ali Janjua, however, objected to Tarrar’s statement, arguing that his power of attorney had not yet been submitted in court. “In which capacity is Tarrar saying this [in court]?” he questioned. The PML-N president left for London in April to visit his grandchildren and to undergo a medical check-up, following which doctors advised him not to travel.Reported By Geo News
