Islamabad, Sep 30 (ANI): In the wake of the Pakistan Supreme Court's orders directing the federal government to re-open the money laundering cases against President Asif Ali Zardari, the Prime Minister's Adviser on Law, Latif Khosa has stated that asking a Swiss magistrate to try President Zardari is tantamount to insulting the people of Pakistan.
Participating in a TV discussion programme on the NRO case, Khosa said that there was a misperception that that the government was not implementing the Supreme Court order on the Swiss cases, The Nation reported.
He pointed out that the government had invoked a constitutional remedy under Article 188 by requesting the Supreme Court to review its decision.
That in no way amounted to disobeying the court, he added.
Khosa also said that there were several instances of the apex court having reviewed its decisions, including the disqualification case of Nawaz Sharif.
Earlier, on September 21, a three-member SC bench headed by CJP Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry had again had directed the federal government to re-open the money laundering cases against President Asif Ali Zardari, as well as to ensure the implementation of the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) verdict "in letter and spirit."
