Deposed Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who has been living in the UK for medical treatment, was sent arrest warrants by the Pakistan Government.
Lahore high court granted him permission to go abroad for four weeks for treatment but Sharif has been in London since more than 6 months.
According to his lawyer, he was given eight weeks to return but failed to come back due to health complications.
Sharif, 70, his daughter and his son in law were convicted in the Avenfield properties case on July 6, 2018. He was also sentenced to seven years in the Al-Azizia- Steel Mills case in December 2018. He was however bailed out in both cases.
According to a Pakistan daily, the arrest warrants sent by the government for Sharif were reportedly received by the Pakistan High Commission in London.
