ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court has adjourned the contempt of court hearing against Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani till April 12 over lack of evidence, Express News reported.
Barrister Aitzaz Ahsan was not present in court when the 7-member bench headed by Justice Nasirul Mulk began the hearing, upon which the court gave a 10-minute break.
When it resumed, Aitzaz told the court that he did not like that the newspapers mocked him when he was unable to appear in court due to his illness, reporting that when the co-defendant mentioned Aitzaz’s illness, Justice Nasirul Mulk smiled.
He also added that since he was unable to prepare for the case due to his illness, he needed some time for preparation.
Upon being questioned by Justice Nasirul Mulk as to when he will be ready, Aitzaz replied that he could not give a deadline as a lot can be said on Article 10-A and like the Aghaz-e-Haqooq-e-Balochistan package, he had not even begun. Hearing this, the court adjourned the hearing till April 12.
