ISLAMABAD: Ali Musa Gilani, son of former prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani, said that he was granted bail by the Supreme Court in the Ephedrine quota case on merit and the apex court had not done him a “favour”.

Speaking to the media on Saturday, Ali Musa said that the Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF), which had arrested him at the Supreme Court gate yesterday before he could submit a pre-arrest bail application, was becoming too personal against him.

“They held a press conference today and said that they did not want me to become a hero. I’m not here to become a hero. How can a government worker give such a political statement?” he said while lashing out against the anti-narcotics body.

He added that whatever happened on the Supreme Court’s premises yesterday was in contempt of the court and was also in his contempt. “I will move a privilege motion against the contempt done against me, and have submitted a contempt of court application as well.”

Ali Musa also clarified that there was no recovery on him in the case, even if all the allegations against him are proven correct. “The main beneficiaries have been spared who are moving about freely.”

Did ever any PPP's representative(s) including Yousuf Raza Gillani accept the Supreme Court's decisions wholeheartedly in the last 4.5 years' PPP's regime that then you Ali Musa Gillani shall accept the court's decisions??????

Those who constantly abuse the Supreme Court should know that the Supreme Court is doing it's job and trying to clean up the mess this government has created with so much corruption. Gilani was given bail because it is within the law and he should realize that the court is not favoring anyone or is against anyone. The question is why he has been accused in this drug case in the first place, let him present the evidence that he is innocent and if he is found guilty of this crime then he will not be in position to show us the V sign, the arrogance of this man is just sickening.
