Pak Attorney General accuses SC of 'ridiculing' PM through 'poetic' verdict
Islamabad, June 19 (ANI): The Attorney General (AG) of Pakistan, in his arguments before the Supreme Court regarding petitions against the National Assembly speaker's ruling in the prime minister's disqualification case, has raised serious objections over the writing of lyrics in the judgment and asserted that the PM was ridiculed through poetry.
AG Irfan Qadir said the seven-member bench went beyond its jurisdiction and ridiculed Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani through the poetry part in the judgment, reports the Daily Times.
Qadir also said the Supreme Court could not disqualify any parliamentarian, adding that the decision has to be taken by the NA speaker and the Election Commission of Pakistan. He also said that the NA speaker was not bound by the Supreme Court judgment.
He argued that Gilani's conviction was based on groundless charges, and the court could not disqualify him on the grounds that he refused to write a letter to Swiss authorities to reopen case against NRO beneficiaries.
Qadir said the seven-member bench's decision also violated Article 248 of the constitution, adding that the court transcended the jurisdiction outside Pakistan.
He also claimed that there is no contempt of court law in the country. He also said the petitioners, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf, have malafide intentions. (ANI)
