The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Deputy Secretary General Ahsan Iqbal on Monday said that if the Pakistan Peoples' Party (PPP) thinks that corruption charges in the Swiss courts were fake then why the government was not writing a letter to the Swiss authorities.
He said that non-implementation of the court's verdicts was against the supremacy of law and constitution.
"By following the policy of confrontation with judiciary and other institutions, the government was committing suicide rather then political martyrdom," the PML-N leader said while commenting on the contempt of court notice issued to Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani in the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) case.
He said that one person's corruption has hijacked democracy and the entire country, adding that in the four years tenure, the PPP government has failed completely to give relief to the masses and now their failure can't be buried under the debris of political martyrdom.
The government should write a letter to the Swiss authorities if they consider that corruption charges against President Asif Ali Zardari were fabricated, adding that if the PPP succeeded in getting acquittal in corruption charges from the Swiss courts then this will be their moral and democratic triumph and no one will be able to charge them for corruption, Ahsan Iqbal said.
Ahsan Iqbal said that as the government was not writing a letter to the Swiss courts which shows that $20 million in the Swiss banks belong to Pakistani nation and the money was accumulated through illegal practices. He said that government was following the policy of confrontation to hide its failed tenure of four years in which corruption has left the country at the verge of bankruptcy besides leaving every department in the country bankrupt.
The PML-N leader hoped that the prime minister would implement the judiciary's verdicts and would also make appearance in the apex court on 19th Jan to follow the contempt of court notice issued to him in the NRO case. He said that government should avoid the policy of creating confrontation among the institutions which would damage the entire country.
