Former Prime Minister and Supreme Leader of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz Sharif refused to receive arrest High Commission on Monday.

According to the details,  Foreign Office sent arrest warrants to Pakistan’s High  Commission in London on September 17 and directed the commission to submit a report on arrest warrants.

The IHC earlier this week had issued non-bailable arrest warrants for Nawaz Sharif while dismissing his application seeking exemption from personal appearance in the hearing of appeals against his conviction in the Al-Azizia and Avenfield properties references.

The former prime minister has been in the United Kingdom since November 2019, after getting bail from the court on medical grounds and securing permission from the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf government.

His doctors said he is suffering from complicated cardiac disease and an immune system disorder that resulted in a dangerously low platelet count.

According to the report submitted in Lahore High Court, the doctor has advised Nawaz Sharif to stay in London for the best treatment and continue medical therapy.
