Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

Fleeing PMs, a Qatar link, a Cambodia order
As a convict, Nawaz Sharif could only manage to leave Pakistan by winning a reprieve on health grounds

Finally, Nawaz Sharif has done a runner albeit with a legal sanction that suddenly makes him a law-abiding renegade, a rarity in a place where abusing law is a badge of honour even for non-descript folks.

Despite the apparent official efforts to retain him, the three-time former head of the state was allowed to leave thanks to an order by Lahore High Court.

A bewildered Imran Khan government decided not to challenge the decision clearing the way for egress. Sharif, who was imprisoned for corruption, was put on the loathsome Exit Control List (ECL) that bars people from leaving the country. As a convict, he could only manage by winning a reprieve on health grounds.

Before his departure, there was a continuous flow of execrable information about his deteriorating health with anti-government commentators and Sharif supporters suggesting if he was not allowed a quick exit his survival could be in jeopardy.

Khan panicked and supported the departure by alluding to the claims that the former Premier was gravely ill. Khan even suggested that he got it personally confirmed from the doctors of Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital, a charitable enterprise that he runs in memoriam of his deceased mother.
