Swiss authorities yet to reply to NRO letter: Naek

Law minister says graft cases against President Zardari cannot be reopened till Swiss authorities respond.

Web Desk December 11, 2012


Federal Law Minister Farooq H Naek has said that the Swiss authorities have not yet replied to the government’s letter regarding reopening graft cases against President Asif Ali Zardari, reported Express News on Tuesday.

Naek was speaking to the media after attending a session of National Assembly’s Standing Committee on Law and Justice.

Replying to a question, the minister said that since the letter has not been replied to, graft cases against the president cannot be reopened.

In the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) implementation case, the Supreme Court had ordered the government to write a letter to Swiss authorities. Former prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani was also disqualified from his post when he failed to comply with the court orders.

The government had finally dispatched the letter around a month ago but has not received any response as yet.

@Arindom: @Kamran Naqvi: The Pak Post Office never dispatched it. It's lying in the office of the PMG in Islamabad. If you don't believe me go and check for yourself.
