Islamabad: A top court in Pakistan on Tuesday issued an arrest warrant against the country’s ailing former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, as he failed to return home to appear before judges to face corruption charges.
The development came after the Islamabad High Court earlier this month and the former Prime Minister was declared a fugitive from justice on September 10 for facing trial or risk of corruption.
Under Pakistan’s legal system, the government can now demand Sharif’s extradition from Britain.
Sharif has lived in London since the authorities released him on bail last November so that he could travel abroad and undergo medical treatment. At that time, the High Court in the eastern city of Lahore allowed Sharif to leave the country for four weeks, with the option that if he could not afford the time to travel abroad.
At Tuesday’s court hearing, Sharif’s lawyer Khwaja Haris told a two-judge panel that Sharif was unable to attend the court hearing because his doctor advised him not to travel due to health reasons. Sharif has a history of heart-related illnesses but has spent most of his time in his apartment in London.
70, Sharif was sentenced to seven years in 2018 for corruption and money laundering. He served three times as Prime Minister, but fell out of favor after the Supreme Court removed him from the post on charges of corruption in 2017.
