Court cannot summon Prime Minister


Attorney General Irfan Qadir on Monday said a prime minister could not be summoned by a court according to the constitution. Talking to reporters on Monday, Qadir said the prime minister appeared before the SC due to his wisdom, as he could not be summoned to the court according to the constitution. Qadir said Raja Pervez Ashraf did not mention anything pertaining to writing the letter to Swiss authorities when he appeared in the Supreme Court. He said with his gesture, the prime minister had declared that he would respect the institutions.
He hoped the constitution was followed and would be followed in the future as well. Qadir said he expected the matter to be resolved with consultations and understanding. The SC on Monday gave a period of three weeks to Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf in the show-cause notice for contempt of court regarding the implementation of National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO).
