Govt respects court decision allowing Nawaz to travel abroad: Firdous Ashiq Awan
ISLAMABAD - The government views the decision of the Lahore High Court (LHC) unconditionally allowing former prime minister Nawaz Sharif to travel abroad with respect, said Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Firdous Ashiq Awan on Saturday.
Talking to media after the verdict was announced, Firdous said that the government would give a response once the court issued its detailed verdict in the case.
The role played by the government and Prime Minister Imran Khan to facilitate the PML-N supremo is unmatchable, she said.
Earlier today, the LHC ordered the unconditional removal of ailing Nawaz Sharif 's name from the no-fly list, allowing him to travel abroad from his treatment.
The former prime minister has been given four weeks period, which is extendable on the basis of medical reports, said a verdict announced by a two-member bench headed by Justice Ali Baqir Najafi and comprising of Justice Sardar Ahmad Naeem.
This week, the government of Sharif's rival Imran Khan added a condition to his travel, saying he must pay a bond of seven billion rupees ($45 million) -- which Sharif's party, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), immediately rejected.
