Chaudhry Sugar Mills case: Court exempts Nawaz from appearing

Lahore (Staff Report/Agencies): An accountability court on Friday accepted former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s petition seeking exemption from appearing before the court in Chaudhry Sugar Mills case.


The ousted premier had filed a petition in the court seeking exemption from appearing before the court in Chaudhry Sugar Mills case on medical grounds.

“Nawaz Sharif is under clinical supervision,” the counsel of the depose premier said while stating the medical certificate provided by Nawaz’ consultant in London Dr Laweance. “He [Nawaz] will undergo a medical examination which is scheduled to take place in the last week of February.”

After examining the medical reports, the judge exempted the former premier from appearing before the court.
