ISLAMABAD: Adviser 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 Senate after the Supreme Court suspended his upper house membership. The court had ordered his suspension for allegedly running for Senate in 2009 while still holding British citizenship. The Constitution bars members of parliament from acquiring foreign nationality.
