Nawaz Sharif is currently in London for treatment. After the recent fall of Imran Khan’s government, there was a lot of speculation about his return to the country.

According to the report, a new passport was issued in the name of Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif’s elder brother in London and former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif so that he could return to the country on April 23.

The report, citing Pakistan’s interior ministry, said the new passport issued to Nawaz was valid for 10 years.

According to media reports, the passport was issued on an “emergency” basis. As a result, Nawaz Sharif will not get any special diplomatic benefits.

Nawaz Sharif, who is currently in London, is facing multiple corruption cases. A few days ago, it was learned that he could return to the country after Eid. At that time, the leader of his party Pakistan Muslim League (N) Mian Javed Latif also admitted the truth of the news. Now that Nawaz Sharif is back in the country, analysts believe that a new turn will come in Pakistan’s politics.

In 2019, the Lahore High Court allowed Nawaz to go to London for treatment. Then he did not return to the country. The Islamabad High Court declared Nawaz Sharif a ‘criminal’ in 2021 for not returning to the country on time. The situation reached such a stage that Nawaz Sharif threatened to kill himself and his daughter Maryam Nawaz. That is why he expressed his anger against the then Prime Minister Imran Khan and the Pak army. But now the situation has changed. Imran has been removed from the post of Prime Minister, and now Nawaz’s own younger brother Shahbaz Sharif is in charge.

In 2016, Nawaz Sharif was ousted by the Supreme Court of Pakistan in the Panama Papers case. Then the Imran government started investigating a bunch of corruption cases against him. In 2016, the Accountability Court sentenced Nawaz to seven years in prison in the Al-Azizia Steel Mill corruption case. He was also sentenced to 11 years in prison in the Avenfield property case. He was also fined 8 million.
