Supreme Court full bench hearing of petitions against the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) was underway here today. Deputy Attorney General filed a plea from the government to expunge a contentious paragraph from the government petition. An attorney for the federal government Barrister Kamal Azfar will in writing clarify his statement in court on Monday, in which he claimed before the bench that the US CIA and General Headquarters pose a threat to the government. Justice Khalil-ur-Rehman Ramday during the hearing in his remarks said if the government fears any extra-constitutional step it should inform the court. The court has summoned former Attorney General Malik Qayyum to highlight the name of the authority on whose orders the cases were withdrawn.
