The Prime Minister's Adviser on Law, Latif Khosa said that asking a Swiss magistrate to try President Zardari is tantamount to insulting the people of Pakistan.
Participating in a discussion on the NRO on Express 24/7's programme Witness with Quatrina, Khosa said there is a misperception that that the government is not implementing the Supreme Court order on the Swiss case.
He said the government has invoked a constitutional remedy under Article 188 by requesting the Supreme Court to review its decision. That in no way amounts to disobeying the court, he said.
Khosa also added that there are several instances where the apex court had reviewed its decisions which includes the Nawaz Sharif disqualification case.
He said the Supreme Court will be informed that the president not only enjoys constitutional immunity but also immunity under the international law.
