An independent medical board appointed by the Punjab government to review former prime minister Nawaz Sharif medical reports has found them ‘incomplete.
A medical board appointed by the federal government to analyze Sharif’s health reports, which were submitted to the Lahore High Court (LHC) on the instructions of the federal government, examined the reports submitted by the PML-N supremo.
According to sources familiar with the issue, a special medical board comprised of nine top doctors has presented its assessment report to the federal government, claiming that the documents submitted before the LHC regarding the PML-N supremo’s health were not complete and hence invalid.
The records contain only the specifics of contact between the doctors and the Sharif family; no real reports regarding the former prime minister’s concerns with platelets, bone marrow, and other health issues are included.
The majority of the board members questioned how the doctors could provide an assessment of the original records that were not available to them.
Nawaz Sharif, the leader of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), travelled to London in November 2019 to receive medical treatment since the federal cabinet had granted him permission to do so.
A plan for bringing Nawaz Sharif back to Pakistan and initiating legal actions against his brother, Shahbaz Sharif, will be created by the government in light of the recommendations of the medical board.
