Twitter reacts to Nawaz Sharif’s 6 week bail on medical grounds

Sharif's name still remains on the Exit Control List


Following the hue and cry of Nawaz Sharif’s ill health, the disqualified former Prime Minister of Pakistan has now been granted bail for 6 weeks.

Ex PM Nawaz Sharif, sentenced for 7 years in Al Azizia Steel Mills reference

After his hearing led by a three-judge bench including Chief Justice of Pakistan Asif Saeed Khosa, Sharif’s bail petition was accepted on medial grounds directing him deposit two surety bonds worth Rs5 million each.

After the six weeks duration is over, Nawaz Sharif will have to surrender himself to jail authorities, failure to do so will result in his immediate arrest. Sharif’s name is still on the exit control list which bars him from traveling abroad.

, Sharif’s legal counsel, Khawaja Haris, had earlier requested bail for eight weeks citing an “urgent angiography” required by his client.

Social media has got up in a frezy following Sharif’s bail. However, one question that everybody is asking is whether other ill prisoners be treated the same way as Sharif and granted bail on medial grounds. The Irony!!!
