Former premier Nawaz Sharif filed an application before the Islamabad High Court seeking exemption from a hearing scheduled tomorrow in the Al-Azizia reference.
A division bench is set to resume hearing of the appeal he had filed against his conviction in the case. A two-member bench of the IHC will hear the appeal on Tuesday.
In his application, Nawaz said he was too unwell to attend the hearing. His updated medical report was also attached to the application.
In February, Nawaz Sharif was diagnosed with serious health problems and the specially constituted medical board that examined him recommended he be shifted to a hospital.
The six-member board examined him at the Kot Lakhpat prison after other doctors suggested that he had cardiac problems and needed to be hospitalised.
Later, the Supreme Court granted him six-week bail to undergo medical treatment and he is being examined at the Sharif Medical City hospital.
