‘LHC handed ruling on Nawaz’s ECL plea on interim basis’


ISLAMABAD: Attorney General Anwar Mansoor Khan on Saturday termed the Lahore High Court’s (LHC) decision of allowing former prime minister Nawaz Sharif to travel abroad for medical treatment an interim verdict which, he said, would be followed by a final ruling. “The court handed down the verdict on an interim basis,” he said in a statement, adding the case has been fixed for hearing in January when the court will decide whether or not a prisoner can be allowed to go abroad in such a manner.
