Commenting over Dr Aafia’s issue, the Governor said that we have provided legal assistance to her but we can’t interfere in US law.
Sardar Latif Khosa said that in dual nationality case, chairman Senate would decide whether Rehman Malik can continue in his office as Interior Minister or not.
He said that letter written by then Attorney General Malik Qayyum was unauthorized.
The Punjab Governor was of the view that former prime minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani took the right decision of not writing letter to the Swiss officials in accordance with the constitution of the country.
