LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) vice president Maryam Nawaz Sharif yesterday said that her father and former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s surgery has been postponed due to coronavirus.
In her latest tweet, the PML-N vice president said, “Doctors say he is a high risk patients which is why every kind of precaution needs to be taken.”
“His treatment continues,” added Maryam. She further requested everyone to keep Nawaz Sharif in their special prayers during Ramazan.
Sharif left for London in November last for treatment after the Lahore High Court allowed him to go abroad on medical grounds for four weeks.
According to Mr. Sharif’s physician Dr. Adnan Khan, the top leader of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) is suffering from complex multi-vessel coronary artery disease and substantial ischemic and threatened myocardium for which he is due to undergo surgery.
The Lahore High Court had, in October last year, granted bail to the PML-N supremo on medical grounds for four weeks, allowing the Punjab government to extend it further in the light of his medical reports.
The Islamabad High Court had also granted bail to Mr. Sharif in the Al Azizia Mills corruption case, in which the former prime minister was serving a seven-year jail term, clearing his way to travel abroad for medical treatment.
