ISLAMABAD Amid the fluid political situation, the government on Thursday gave a new turn to the cases against President Asif Ali Zardari in Swiss courts claiming that writing to a foreign government against head of state would question sovereignty. Federal Ministry of Law and Justice has forwarded a summary proposal to Prime Minister Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani giving out its legal opinion regarding reopening of the cases in Swiss courts against the President as required under the apex court orders against the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO). The Supreme Court of Pakistan in the NRO case had required Law Secretary Masood Chishti to come up with a clear answer today that what had his Ministry advised to the government in the light of the apex courts verdict against the notorious NRO. Since the Law Ministry has opined in the summary sent to the Prime Minister rather against re-opening of the cases against the President in foreign courts, it is feared that it would create a heated situation in the court today. However, its status is still that of a proposal and the Prime Minister is to take a final decision on this. According to details of the Law Ministrys summary, it has observed that the President was very well protected under the Constitutions article 248 of immunity that bars both any legal action against him and also opening of any case against him in any foreign court. The Law Ministry has viewed the President as Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces of Pakistan, therefore, it opined, the governments writing to any foreign government for reopening of cases against him would be undermining of sovereignty besides violating the Constitution. The summary has also emphasised the supremacy of the Parliament wherein the President is an essential part of it and again writing to a foreign government to proceed against him would be undermining the parliaments supremacy. A three-member Supreme Court Bench comprising Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, Justice Tariq Parvez and Justice Ghulam Rabbani had given three days to the Law Secretary for preparing a fresh summary for the Prime Minister regarding the implementation of the apex courts verdict against NRO.
