PM is not accountable to the courts: AG Qadir
ISLAMABAD: Attorney General of Pakistan, Irfan Qadir said on Friday that Prime Minister’s designation is more powerful as compared to the judges and he is not accountable to the courts, DawnNews reported.
Irfan Qadir added that the final decision on the contempt of court case against Prime Minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf will be taken within two days.
While talking to the media, outside the Supreme Court, he said that, “all the positions fall under the authority of Prime Minister after President. If all are equal in the eyes of law then the Supreme Court should also call 18 million people.”
Moreover, Attorney General said that, Supreme Court should not have summoned the Prime Minister to appear before the court and they cannot ask the prime minister to write a letter.
“All federal institutions should be respected,” said Irfan Qadir.
He also added that he will continue to follow the constitution of Pakistan regardless of what the court says.
