The Supreme Court on Wednesday gave deadline
to the new Prime Minister to open Swiss corruption cases against President
Asif Ali Zardari, a matter which led to the dismissal of previous Premier Syed
Yousuf Raza Gilani.
The Supreme Court in its brief order, issued after proceedings in
implementation of NRO case, asked the new Prime Minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf
to write letter to Swiss authorities to open corruption cases against
Former Prime Minister Gilani was disqualified from his office for not
writing the letter to the Swiss authorities and, hence, committing the
contempt of court. Immediately after his dismissal and election of new Prime
Minister, the President signed an ordinance that validated all the orders,
directions, instruments and agreements signed and taken by former Premier
Legal experts and political analysts fear that the executive and judiciary
are heading toward another collision as it appears that the new Premier will
also not open corruption cases against the President.
