Lahore, May 16:
Pakistan’s anti-graft body has approved the filing of two additional corruption cases against embattled former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, who is currently in London for medical treatment.
Five corruption cases have been launched by the government of Prime Minister Imran Khan previously against the 70-year-old supremo of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz since his ouster from the office by the Supreme Court in July 2017 in the Panama Papers case. Sharif family is accused of swindling 7 billion Pakistani Rupees.
Nawaz, who was diagnosed with an immune system disorder, has been advised by Pakistan government’s panel of doctors to go abroad for treatment.
Nawaz’s personal physician Dr Adnan Khan said the former premier has been diagnosed with “complicated coronary artery/ischemic heart disease with significant disease burden.”
