PM appeals against the charge sheet on Contempt Case – Alfalah Securities Limited

Karachi: A larger bench of the Supreme Court was constituted on Wednesday to hear Intra-Court Appeal (ICA) filed by Prime Minister Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani who has sought an exemption from appearance in person before the court on February 13.

According to Alfalah Securities Limited, the premier’s attorney, Aitzaz Ahsan, has contended in the appeal that the court in its order on February 2 had cited no specific reason to initiate contempt of court proceedings against the Prime Minister. He has quoted more than 50 national and international cases to substantiate his contentions in the ICA. Alfalah Securities Limited believes that the case proceedings would linger on for some more time after the appeal of the Prime Minister.
