ISLAMABAD: Advisor to Prime Minister on Interior Affairs Rehman Malik submitted his reply to the Supreme Court in the dual nationality case on Wednesday.
Malik, in his reply, has asked the apex court to dispose of the complaint registered against him. He said that his dual nationality case had stirred a controversy and that he had to resign as a senator because of it.
Malik had resigned from the Senate after the Supreme Court suspended his upper house membership. The court had ordered his suspension for allegedly running for the Senate in 2009 while still holding British citizenship.
The Constitution bars members of parliament from acquiring foreign nationality.
Documents that Malik had submitted to the court failed to convince judges that he had renounced his dual nationality before being elected.
Malik, however, was re-elected unopposed as a senator from Sindh on July 23 after the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) decided to again put up his name for a seat in the upper legislative house.

@Rick: You just got rickrolled!
Court should not spare this man. No body will care if he is eliminated,. He is good for nothing anyway.
Please dispose of Rehman Malik as well, he should go back to his favourite subway sandwich shop in on Edgware Rd, London wering bermuda shorts as he used to.
@Nasir Mahmood: @Mirza: @ashraf javed: Everybody is a criminal especially if they are elected and not a member of rightwing organization. The only people who are not criminals are those who have committed acts of high treason against the state and aided and abetted in it. This is called selective justice PCO style!
@Mirza: He deserves.
He must be penalised for providing fake documents and cheating the court as well as constitution. His bosses and affiliates consider the membership supreme. shameful act
Whatever you do , you are in bad list of judiciary. They will bang you sooner or later
