PM Contemp Case Hearing Underway

Latest Pakistan News > Islamabad News > The SC of Pakistan has resumed the hearing of the contempt of court case against PM Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani for not implementing its order on the controversial National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) today.

 PM contempt case hearing underway

The seven-member special bench, headed by Justice Nasirul Mulk is hearing the case.


PM Gilani’s counsel Barrister Aitzaz Ahsan commented  that Contempt of Court Ordinance 2003 is no more effective as a new ordinance in this regard was issued in 2004.


 Aitzaz said. ‘As per my information a petition is pending with the court over the issue asking clarification about the effective law,’


Justice Nasir told the existing Contempt of Court Law is of 2003.


The SC had adjourned the hearing on March 27 after the PM’s counsel Barrister Aitizaz Ahsen told the court that due to illness he would not be able to argue before the apex court, thus seeking adjournment.


The counsel in response to the court’s query submitted that he had not yet argued extensively on Article 10-A of the Constitution incorporated under the 18th Constitutional Amendment; hence, he still needed time to complete his arguments before the court.
