Islamabad, Apr.30 (ANI): Reprimanding the authorities over non-implementation of its verdict on the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) even after four months, the Pakistan Supreme Court has asked as to why it should not issue notice to the Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani.

During a suo motu hearing against the non-implementation of the NRO verdict, Justice Raja Fayyaz Ahmed asked Deputy Attorney General Agha Tariq Mehmood as to why the apex court's orders have not been implement in real terms.

"The prime minister represents the government, so it's his responsibility to ensure implementation of the NRO verdict. What is happening?" Justice Ahmed asked.

"Why are the government functionaries delaying the implementation of the NRO verdict? What about compliance with the court's orders?" he said when Mehmood pleaded the court to grant more time for implementing its verdict.

Mehmood told the court that the Prime Minister had ordered a fact-finding inquiry to look into the issues, but documents regarding his orders could not be procured.

The apex court then asked him to produce all documents regarding the developments in the case before it during the next hearing. (ANI)
