ISLAMABAD, Mar 26: Pakistan's Supreme Court agreed on Tuesday to release jailed former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on bail for six weeks to receive medical treatment but said he would not be allowed to leave the country.
Sharif is serving a seven-year sentence imposed last year for failing to disclose the source of income that allowed him to acquire the Al-Azizia Steel Mills in Saudi Arabia. He has appealed. The sentence would be suspended for six weeks from the date of Sharif's release, Chief Justice Asif Saeed Khosa said.
"In these six weeks he shall not be allowed to leave Pakistan," he said, reading the order.    -REUTERS
