ISLAMABAD: Attorney-General of Pakistan Maulvi Anwarul Haq has submitted four volumes of documentary evidence before the Supreme Court in the prime minister’s contempt of court case.

The 43 documents filed on Thursday include the court’s judgments in the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) and its implementation case.

No exclusive document has been submitted.

The first document is an application that says that the attorney-general is submitting documents required by the court in the contempt case while the last document is an affidavit by the AGP that gives the assurance that he has submitted all documents pertaining to the case that he could collect so far.

“Other documents pertain to the Supreme Court’s judgment in the NRO case and its follow up instructions to the government,” an official from the attorney-general’s office told The Express Tribune.

Aitzaz Ahsan, the prime minister’s counsel, will submit a list of witnesses along with their statements in the case on February 27. A seven-member bench of the apex court, headed by Justice Nasirul Mulk, will examine the documents submitted by the AGP on February 22 and on February 28, it will examine the prime minister’s record.
