Prime Minister's defence lawyer, Aitzaz Ahsan Thursday expressed reservations over contempt of court law and said that no law could exist, which is not in conformity with the Constitution.

Speaking to media outside the Supreme Court after hearing of contempt case, Ahsan denied the media reports that he had expressed no-confidence in Supreme Court bench.

He said that there was no question of confidence or no-confidence as it was enshrined in the Constitution that complainant or who took suo motu action could not hear the case.

He lamented that a section of media was misquoting him and publishing false news. Speaking about his objection over the seven-judge bench, hearing contempt case against Gilani, he said his objection was legal point under Article-10 of the Constitution.

The lawyer for Gilani said that the judges listened to him patiently. He said that a judge himself should not hear the case, which he initiated, under Article-10 without any one raising objection.

Former Supreme Court Bar Association President said fair trial is the fundamental right under Article-10A, which should be assured.

Ahsan asserted that his viewpoint in the contempt case should be accepted, emphasizing that as many as five judges do not deserve to sit in the bench as according to Article-10A, a judge or an authority who has issued a show-cause notice, cannot sit in the bench hearing a concerning petition.

Authority who frames charge-sheet, is not eligible to hear the same case, Ahsan added.

‘My objection is legal and technical one. And, this stance of mine is correct to the best of my reckoning. Now, this is up to the court to decide on it,’ the PM’s counsel said adding Article-10A was put in effect on April 10, 2010.

The countries, the PM’s counsel noted, do not surrender to the other countries their common citizens even like Raymond Davis, adding, ‘We will first cross River Ravi and will look to Chenab, afterwards.’

The one who killed 18 civilians in Afghanistan was taken back by the government of his country, he said.

Aitezaz Ahsan maintained as long as President Asif Ali Zardari is in his office, he will enjoy the immunity in all courts of the world.

Replying to a question, Aitezaz said the corruption should be overcome; however, if no lawsuit is filed on it, so it does not concern him.

Meanwhile, The Supreme Court Thursday adjourned the hearing of contempt case against Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani till Monday.
