ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Wednesday adjourned the hearing of the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) review case till November 1. Moreover, the hearing into the NRO implementation case will be resumed on Thursday.
During today’s hearing, Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry remarked that the court’s decision on the NRO was not being implemented.
The apex court was hearing the cases pertaining to the NRO.
A 17-judge full court heard the cases regarding the implementation of the court’s verdict on the NRO and the government’s review petition in this respect.
Former Attorney-General Latif Khosa represented the federation in the cases.
“I have been appointed the government’s lawyer in the NRO cases,” DawnNews quoted Latif Khosa as saying.
Khosa said he had been issued a letter of authority by the law ministry to defend the government in the NRO cases.
During the course of the hearing, the court ordered Latif Khosa to file a separate application for change of counsel.
The government then filed another review petition seeking change in counsel that was earlier rejected by the apex court.
The court had rejected the government’s plea for changing its lawyer in the NRO review case and had refused to allow more time to the government.
