ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, after being convicted by the Supreme Court of Pakistan (SC) in the non-implementation of the apex court’s ruling on the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO), showed dissatisfaction over the verdict, Geo News reported Thursday.
While talking to Geo News, he said that the judgment by the SC bench was not proper.
He said that he asked for justice and hoped that legal formalities would be met.
Legal aides will decide about appealing against the SC’s verdict, the convicted PM added.
The Supreme Court (SC) on Thursday ruled that Gilani is guilty of contempt for refusing to obey an order to write to the authorities in Switzerland to ask them to re-open corruption cases against President Asif Ali Zardari, Geo News reported Thursday.
"For reasons to be recorded later, the prime minister is found guilty of contempt for wilfully flouting the direction of the Supreme Court," said Justice Nasir-ul-Mulk.
Prime Minister Gilani stood before the SC to hear the verdict in contempt case for not implementing the apex court’s ruling on the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO).
