A medical board on Monday suggested shifting former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, who is currently incarcerated in the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) scandal, from Adalia jail to a hospital after his health deteriorated. The medical board has recommended a hernia surgery for the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader. Medical reports also suggest that Abbasi has stones in his bladder and kidney. During Abbasi’s appearance before the accountability court on Monday, the political leader’s counsel submitted a plea praying upon the court to broadcast the LNG scandal trial on television. Former Finance Minister Miftah Ismail and Imran-ul-Haq were presented before the court. Judge Muhammad Bashir heard the case. “Imran Khan claims he is behind the accountability drive in the country while the NAB chairman also claims he is behind the accountability drive in the country. People should know what is happening and they should be able to watch everything on TV,” said Abbasi. The former premier also moved a petition in the accountability court seeking permission to be treated at Al-Shifa Hospital on his expense.
