Chaudhry Sugar Mills case

Statesman Report
LAHORE: An accountability court on Friday accepted former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s plea requesting exemption from appearing before it on medical grounds in Chaudhry Sugar Mills case.
During Friday's proceedings, Nawaz’s lawyer Amjad Pervez submitted his latest medical reports to the accountability court.
The counsel argued that the former prime minister is still unwell and will face the trial as soon as his condition is improved.
He further told the court that Nawaz is under observation of a clinical team and at the end of February he will undergo further medial examinations.
“Nawaz cannot travel to Pakistan due to his ongoing treatment,” Pervez informed the court.
After the arguments concluded, the accountability court accepted the exemption plea and adjourned the hearing until February 28.
