The Supreme Court has adjourned hearing in the prime minister's contempt of court case until February 28, Express News has reported.

Attorney-General of Pakistan Maulvi Anwarul Haq has presented evidence against the prime minister in the contempt of court case as the court resumed hearing on Thursday.

The documents, which were presented on Wednesday, include the National Reconciliation Ordinance primary verdict and the order on the subsequent review appeal by the federal government. The evidence was earlier presented by the prosecution.

The court has included the documents in the case records.

Last week, the AGP had presented four volumes of documentary evidence.

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 prime minister’s record on February 28.

Why the SC delaying the case. All know PM will not write letter. He is saying it last 4 to 5 months then what is the thing the SC is waiting. It is enough disqualify him or leave him

. . . and the venerable Supreme Court keeps knitting wool while the country burns. They have an uncanny ability to seek out the most frivolous issues upon which to focus their collective intellect, while happily ignoring the more fundamental problems which beset Pakistan. Justice is indeed blind . . .
