Supreme Court issues detailed judgement against PM Gilani


Islamabad: The Supreme Court of Pakistan has issued detailed judgment against Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani in contempt of court case.

The 77-page verdict was written by  Justice Nasirul Mulk who headed a seven member bench during the course of proceedings against Gilani.

The Prime Minister was sentenced for less than 30 seconds imprisonment in short order on April, 26.

Gilani was convicted by the country’s top court for not implementing its orders of writing letter to Swiss authorities to reopen graft cases against Asif Ali Zardari.

The verdict noted: “The court was deliberately ridiculed  that  might result in disqualification for five years”.  It said Gilani’s counsel  (Aitzaz) didn’t utter single  word about disqualification.

“Judicial system would be destroyed if top official of the country would defy court orders,” the detailed judgment said.

The court said in the ruling that if the argument regarding the President had been accepted it would be dangerous precedent.

Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani who left for UK for 5-day visit on Tuesday,  had refused to resigned from the post, saying he would file an appeal against the Supreme Court of Pakistan’s ruling after it released detailed judgment.
