Islamabad: Three-time Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, a month after being released on bail from a seven-year sentence in Al-Azizia case, departed for London on Tuesday for medical treatment.

He was flown in an air ambulance from the Allama Iqbal International Airport, Lahore, accompanied by his brother Shehbaz Sharif.

Prior to departure, the doctors inspected Sharif’s blood sugar level, blood pressure and performed a CBC test. Upon clearance of all medical tests and doctors’ recommendations, the air ambulance took off from the airport.
