The larger bench of Supreme Court has served the contempt notice to the Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani in NRO implementation case and asked the PM to appear before the apex court on January 19 in person, Dunya News reported.
A seven-member bench of the apex court, presided over by Justice Nasirul Mulk, was hearing the National Reconciliation Ordinance implementation case on Monday.
Earlier, the Attorney-General Maulvi Anwarul Haq told the Supreme Court that he did not get any instructions from the government in response to the six options put forward by the apex court in the NRO implementation case.
The attorney-general said that he had informed all concerned authorities about the court’s directives but did not get any response from them.
Law Minister Maula Bux Chandio said that the government would consult lawyers and experts with respect to the court’s notice and that whatever would be done would be done in accordance with the law and constitution.
