Islamabad, 17 January 2012. A petition was filed on Tuesday in the Lahore Registry of the Supreme Court against a contempt notice issued against Prime Minster Yousuf Raza Gilani in the backdrop of the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) implementation case, DawnNews reported.
Barrister Zafarullah in his petition argued that under the Article 248-1 of the Constitution, the premier also enjoyed immunity as did the president.
The petition further said that writing a letter to Swiss authorities was not the job of the prime minister.
It said that the court should have summoned the law secretary and the law minister before calling the prime minister before it on January 19.
