Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Qamar Zaman Kaira on Tuesday said the government has given a way forward in the NRO (National Reconciliation Ordinance) implementation case to the satisfaction of court rulings.

While speaking to the media outside the apex court, he said they were moving in the right direction and they had full confidence in the court.

The minister observed, “The democratic government does not want any confrontation with the institutions and those desiring for such a situation have faced disappointment. Pakistan Peoples’ Party has contested its cases in the court rooms”.

Kaira said the Prime Minister informed the court during the today’s hearing that serious efforts were being made for the implementation of court verdicts.

He was of the opinion that those who want clash among the institutions are disappointed after the Supreme Court adjourned the NRO case till September 25th.

In quite a satisfactory mood, he continued that Prime Minister Ashraf brilliantly presented the government’s stance before the court. He stated, “We will follow the court’s orders’ he added while talking with media outside the Supreme Court”.

While replying to a query, the minister the stance of the former Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani was the right one and the present decision in the case has been taken keeping in view the current situation.

He was of the opinion that they should not strike up in the past and instead look towards the future.

Earlier, Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf informed the court that he has directed Federal Minister for Law Farooq H Naek to withdraw letter written by Qayyum Malik to close cases against President Asif Ali Zardari.

In its short order penned down during the hearing of the NRO implementation case, the Supreme Court granted immunity to Raja Pervaiz Ashraf from court appearances and directed him to submit a draft of the Swiss letter by September 25.

The court ordered that it wanted to review the text of the letter (to be written to Swiss authorities), so that it can gauge if it is accordance with the directives contained in paragraphs 177 and 178 of the NRO judgment.

The judgment had asked the government to request mutual legal assistance from the Swiss authorities.
