Dual offices case: LHC gives Zardari 'one more chance'

Court says president's non-compliance will lead to contempt of court proceedings.

Web Desk June 27, 2012

LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) has given President Asif Ali Zardari “one more chance” to comply with the court’s order, adding that the court will begin contempt proceedings if this was not done, Express News reported on Wednesday.

On May 12, last year, a full bench of the LHC had ruled that Asif Zardari could not continue as co-chairman of the ruling Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) while sitting in the Presidency.

The bench had asked him to either step down as co-chairman of the PPP or stop using the presidency for politicking.

During the hearing of the dual offices case in the LHC, the court said that it was the president’s duty to implement the order of the full bench which he had violated earlier.

The court had earlier issued a notice to Zardari for holding two offices in violation of its earlier order.

The Blog administrator does not publish fair opinion.I think he is of the opinion that he is not answerable to any one and he will not die.He does not differentiate b/w HALAL AND HARAM ,fair and unfair .So I think it is just wastage of time.
