Nawaz treatment abroad

Pakistan deadlock causes delay

AFP, Islamabad

A political dogfight in Pakistan is delaying efforts to secure treatment overseas for ailing ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif, whose health remains “critical” according to his doctor yesterday. Pakistani courts have granted bail to Sharif—who is serving a prison sentence for corruption—so that he may seek treatment and Islamabad had previously said it would not block requests to remove him from a travel ban list.

This week, however, the government of Sharif’s rival Imran Khan added a condition to his travel, saying he must pay a bond of seven billion Pakistani rupees ($45 million) -- which Sharif’s party, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), immediately rejected.
