ISLAMABAD The government has submitted an amended plea clubbing the fresh review petition with the one earlier filed in the Supreme Court to review its judgement on National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) arguing that the apex court failed to consider the doctrine of the 'past and closed transactions while handing down the judgement on NRO December 16. The petition along with a copy of the apex courts detailed verdict on NRO was filed through Raja Abdur Rehman Advocate here on Saturday. Earlier, the Federation had filed the review petition on January 16. The fresh petition was filed under Article 188 of the Constitution read with order XXVI Rule 1, of the apex court rules, 1980 for review of the short order in the constitutional petition No 76/2007. In its fresh plea, the Federation argued, By virtue of the doctrine of tracheotomy of powers, the SC made a mistake in Para 14 (IX) of short order in holding that it had the power to issue directions, claims and status of cases proceedings outside of Pakistan. Earlier, the Federation on January 16 had argued that the court order erred at Para 14 (IX) of the short order in holding that it had the power to direct the federal government to revive requests and status of cases. The Federation pleaded the apex court to review the verdict regarding Swiss accounts and re-opening of cases under the NRO. Earlir, an appeal was filed in the apex court on part of NAB Chairman Navid Ahsan and Additional Prosecutor General Abdul Baseer Qureshi for review of the NRO verdict. The NAB officials requested the court to omit the remarks in the NRO case verdict against the NAB and its high officials. Besides, former Attorney General Malik Qayyum requested the apex court through miscellaneous petitions that the apex court might review its judgement regarding legal action against him (Qayyum) when he (according to the court) exceeded from his power as attorney general of Pakistan. Wasim Sajjad submitted the plea in the apex court on behalf of Qayyum who was in Dubai with the members of his family. It is also worth-mentioning that the apex courts verdict had also ordered reopening of criminal and corruption cases against bureaucrats and politicians including President Asif Ali Zardari. The grounds under which all applications were filed argued that the SC as a matter of law erred in Para13 of the short order in considering facts whilst acting in its constitutional jurisdiction especially in an unopposed petition. Earlier, a 17-member larger bench of the Supreme Court, headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, declared the NRO unconstitutional and illegal.
