Text of letter to Swiss authorities in synch with SC’s order


Law Minister Farooq Naik has said the letter written to Swiss authorities has been changed but its text has been kept in consonance with the Supreme Court’s (SC) approval.
“Some changes have been made in the letter but its text is in line with what the apex court has approved,” he told a private TV channel on Thursday.
He said the confirmation receipt of the letter written to the Swiss authorities would be received before the next hearing on November 14.
He said the letter had reached Pakistan’s ambassador in Switzerland through the Foreign Office on November 3. “The ambassador will hand over this letter in person or through his representative to the attorney general of Geneva,” he told the channel.
He said a copy of the SC’s verdict had not been attached with the letter but a copy of paragraph No 178 had been enclosed with it.
He said another letter had also been sent to Pakistan’s ambassador in Switzerland, asking him to ensure the delivery of the letter to the Swiss attorney general.
Naik said he was hoping that a confirmation receipt of the letter would be received ahead of
the next hearing.
Regarding the caretaker government, he said no decision had been taken in that regard so far.
