Supreme Court resumed hearing of contempt of court case against Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani here in Islamabad on Thursday.

A seven member larger bench headed by Justice Nasirul Mulk is hearing the case. Counsel of the Prime Minister‚ Aitzaz Ahsan continued his arguments in the case.

In his arguments Chaudhry Aitzaz Ahsan said that under the Article 10-A it is the fundamental right of every citizen to have transparent trial. He said the adopted procedure of the Judges in this case is contradictory with the article 10-A.

He maintained that as the present bench issued notices and fixed the charge of contempt of court‚ it should now refer the case to another bench and in this connection the Supreme Court may adopt a suo moto.

He said his party has full confidence in the bench and the Judges. He said each law is under the Constitution.

Aitzaz argued that the Article 10-A is not a choice but it should have been enforced strictly.

The Court has now adjourned the hearing till Monday.
