Islamabad, May 26 (ANI): Pakistan Law Minister Babar Awan has told the Supreme Court that there were no graft cases pending against President Asif Ali Zardari in Switzerland, and that only investigations were ordered against him.

"There was absolutely no case at all," Awan told the apex court during hearing of the case concerning actions taken by the federal government to implement its December 2009 judgement declaring the amnesty law, the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) as 'unconstitutional'.

The court asked the Law Ministry to submit a detailed report within two weeks on the steps taken by the government to implement its judgement on the NRO verdict.

"We will pass an order in view of the concise statement to be filed by you. There should be a clear reply as to what steps have been taken in implementing the NRO verdict and whether the government intends to implement the entire order in letter and spirit or not," he Daily Times quoted Justice Raja Fayyaz Ahmed, as saying.

Later, talking to mediapersons after the court adjourned the hearing of the case, Awan rejected talks of confrontation between the government and the judiciary.

"There is, there was and there will be no confrontation between the government and the judiciary," Awan said. (ANI)
