The Islamabad High Court (IHC) will hear an appeal filed against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s conviction in Al-Azizia reference on September 1.

A two-member bench of the IHC will hear the appeal on September 1.

Pakistan on Saturday had approached British authorities to repatriate three-time prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Nawaz Sharif, who is currently staying in London for his medical treatment.

Pakistan’s High Commissioner to United Kingdom Mohammad Nafees Zakaria had written a letter to the British authorities, demanding to handover the PML-N supremo to Pakistan.

The development came a day after Federal Minister for Information Senator Shibli Faraz said that it is necessary to bring back Mian Nawaz to Pakistan and the government will ask the Foreign Office (FO) to take steps for his return.
