ISLAMABAD: Former Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani charged a petition after more than seven months against Supreme Court Decision for his disquailifcation.
Under the Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry A three member bench of the apex Court headed for disqualification of prime minister case.
On 26 April 2012, 56-year-old Gilani, who is vice chairman of the ruling PPP, was emblematically sentenced to 30 seconds in custody after he was found hangdog in the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) execution case for not writing a letter to the Swiss authorities for opening corruption cases against President Asif Ali Zardari.
Gilani on Saturday personally came to the Supreme Court to charge the followup request against his disqualification.
More former, he had sent his review request by email to the court. The Registrar Office of the apex court, however, on January 5, 2013 gave back his review petition after raising technical disagrees.
Before registering his review petition, the former Prime Minister, while talking to the media, said that he was submitting his petition after removing the SC Registrar’s remonstrations.
The former Prime Minister also said that he had charged the petition after consulting his legal experts.
Gilani said that he took the position that the president enjoyed exemption under the Constitution and the Speaker of the National Assembly also supported his view.
He said he took the decision as prime minister and he was punished individually and was the loser as a result of the disqualification Decision.
Gilani said that Barrister Aitzaz Ahsan did his best in his case.
