Punjab Health Minister Dr. Yasmin Rashid said here on Tuesday that the Medical Reports of the former Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif required for extension in his bail are incomplete and inconclusive.
She expressed these views while addressing a Press Conference at the Directorate General Public Relations (DGPR) here on Tuesday. The Minister said that bail of Mian Nawaz Sharif expired on 25th December 2019 after which the latest status was to be submitted to the court. The Medical Board constituted for technical advice on Nawaz Sharif condition has assessed that the reports of his current condition received from his personal physician are incomplete and this has accordingly been shared with the Home Department.
Nawaz Sharif’s lawyer Khawaja Haris had pleaded to the court on the expiry of bail that a new Medical Board may be constituted. The Specialized Healthcare and Medical Education Department directed accordingly and a new Medical Board by Convener Professor Mehmud Ayaz was constituted. This Board met on January 2 and 3 to assess whether the stay of former Prime Minister in London may be extended on medical grounds or not. The Medical Board has informed the personal physician of the former Prime Minister that reports are incomplete and inconclusive.
“Nothing new has been diagnosed in fresh reports we have received. They have listed the same complications we had diagnosed earlier and it is not possible to reach a definite conclusion on the developments in the last six weeks. The Medical Board has communicated the same to the Home Department that reaching a conclusion is not possible on the basis of the Medical Reports.
