Government To Revive Zardari’s Swiss cases, PM pledges enforcement of SC verdict

Following the apex court’s judgment, the Government of Pakistan would be writing to the foreign courts including Swiss to revive the corruption cases against the president of Pakistan. In the Swiss courts most of the cases, closed following NRO promulgation as a consequence of the request of the Government of Pakistan, were pertaining to the alleged corruption of President Asif Ali Zardari. It would be a unique precedent where a government would be writing to another government for the initiation of corruption cases against its own president. President Asif Ali Zardari’s constitutional immunity from criminal prosecution available in the Constitution of Pakistan will not apply in Switzerland where he will be governed by the Swiss law, and the international law for being a foreign head of state after the revival of the closed cases of massive corruption

PM pledges enforcement in letter and spirit

The prime minister had consultations with some eminent constitutional experts about the interpretation of the judgment. Some ‘jurists’ have advised the prime minister to wait till the time the apex court gives a full verdict in the cases, but Prime Minister Gilani has made up his mind to take action in accordance with the spirit of the judgment within 24 hours of its pronouncement.

Lets see what happens, the SC verdict has indeed changed the whole game.

Pakistani High Commissioner in Britain Wajid Shamsul Hasan headed a secret operation in Geneva and received at least 12 cartons comprising the original documents and evidences against some Pakistani high-ups in Swiss money laundering case, Geo News reported Tuesday.

The sources said the secret operation was carried out at the bidding of a top personality of Pakistan, as these evidences could be used if Swiss Money Laundering case is reopened after the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) terms comes to an end. The sources at Pakistan embassy said if the concerned officials or the courts do not interfere by taking the evidences back from Wajid, then these documents would be wasted for good.
