Swiss authorities refuse to reopen Zardari graft cases


Pakistan, Islamabad News – In response to the letter sent by the government on the directives of Pakistan’s top court, Swiss authorities on Saturday refused to reopen the graft case against President Asif Ali Zardari.

The government had sent the letter to the Swiss authorities in Nov last year in the light of the Supreme Court’s verdict in the NRO implementation case.

Former prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani had to face disqualification for committing contempt of court by not writing the letter to Swiss authorities. The two-year standoff between the government and the judiciary was resolved when Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf appeared before the court and informed it that the government was ready to write the letter.

Sources told that the government has received a written response from Swiss authorities on Saturday. Federal Law Minister Farooq H. Naek has confirmed receiving the letter.

Meanwhile, Information Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira, by welcoming the decision, has urged to not “over-celebrate.”
