With only a few days left in his scheduled return to Pakistan, former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s bail applications were filed in the Islamabad High Court on Wednesday.

Nawaz’s lawyers requested protective bail in the Al-Aziziya case and the Avenfield case in light of the IHC’s previous verdicts.

Nawaz had been sentenced to 10 years in prison in the Avenfield case and seven years in the Al-Aziziya case.

His bail applications had been disposed of in June 2021 after he did not show up in court. The IHC has also declared him an absconder.


Nawaz’s lawyers will request protective bail in order to allow him to appear before the court for a renewal of the bail application.

The PMLN chief has also been declared as an absconder in the Toshakhana case by an accountability court.

Nawaz is set to return to Pakistan after nearly four years in exile. He traveled abroad in 2019 after the Lahore High Court allowed him to seek medical treatment abroad.
