Islamabad - Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) President and former prime minister Ch Shujaat Hussain has suggested that Prime Minister Imran Khan, exercising his discretionary powers, should allow Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif to travel abroad for medical treatment.

In a statement issued on Saturday, Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain said that the judiciary should not be dragged into political matters and the government should provide PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif complete medical facilities.

Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain said, “In political nature cases, decisions are used as examples which result in creation of problems. Other people also put burden on the courts by using such cases as basis.”

“There is difference between verdicts of the courts and executive decisions of the government because executive measures are taken under discretionary powers in extraordinary circumstances and these do not become judicial examples, ” the PML-Q chief added.

Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain further said that there was no anti-state allegation against Mian Nawaz Sharif. There were only financial misappropriations charges against him. In such cases the judiciary should not be put to test, this could cause far-reaching dangerous results for the country, the PML-Q leader maintained.
