ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said Wednesday that he would not be pressured by any threats.
The prime minister was addressing the Federal Cabinet and stated that he had the right to an appeal in his contempt of court conviction and hoped that justice would prevail.
On April 26, the Supreme Court convicted Prime Minister Gilani for his willful intent of not complying with its order to write a letter to Swiss authorities for the reopening of corruption cases against President Asif Ali Zardari.
Following the conviction, Gilani on numerous occasions has put forth his stance to protect the constitution and exercise his right to an appeal.
Meanwhile, opposition parties have been calling for the prime minister to resign with the PML-N leading the chorus.
