LAHORE – Supreme Court Bar Association President Yaseen Azad on Tuesday advised Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani to write a letter to Swiss authorities for reopening the cases against President Asif Ali Zardari.

Talking to reporters after attending a condolence reference, Mr Azad said the premier was not bound constitutionally to resign after indicted by the apex court in contempt case.

“If the apex court verdict comes against Gilani, he will not be automatically disqualified as member of the parliament because there is a procedure lay down in the constitution for the purpose,” Mr Azad added.
