Lahore (Staff Report/Agencies): The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Friday permitted Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif to fly abroad for medical treatment.
Earlier the day, the court had reserved its verdict on the plea moved by PML-N president seeking removal of his name from the blacklist.
Shehbaz had approached the court, seeking direction to the concerned quarters for the removal of his name from the blacklist so that he could fly abroad for medical treatment.
In his petition, Shehbaz had stated that after getting bail in Ashiana Housing and Ramzan Sugar Mills cases, he went abroad and came back.
During today’s court proceedings, Shehbaz produced a return ticket showing his intent to come back the country after getting medical treatment.
After hearing the arguments, the court granted Shehbaz “one time” permission to go abroad on medical grounds from May 8 to July 3.
