Pakistan Cabinet has decided to allow former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to go abroad for medical treatment if he agrees to sign surety bonds making a commitment that he would return after the treatment and face cases against him. The cabinet meeting, chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan, approved removal of Sharif’s name from the no-fly list. Railway Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmad told media that the Cabinet conditionally allowed Sharif to go abroad. The 69-year-old Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo agreed to go to the UK for treatment, heeding doctors’ advice and accepting his family’s request. He was scheduled to leave for London on a Pakistan International Airlines flight on last Sunday. However, he could not leave as his name figured in the no fly-list.

“Majority of the cabinet members supported the decision to let him go out of the country for treatment but with the condition that he should give surety bond to come back,” he said.

Special Assistant on Information Firdous Awan in a briefing after the meeting told media that Khan looked at the case of Sharif on human grounds and “decided to allow Nawaz Sharif get treatment out of Pakistan”.
