Pak Supreme Court cites two SCI judgement to disqualify Gilani

Pakistan’s Supreme
Court referred to two judicial
verdicts by the Indian apex court
in its ruling disqualifying Prime
Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani
following his conviction of
contempt.
The four-page short order issued
yesterday by a three-judge bench
headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar
Chaudhry referred to a total of
eight judicial verdicts, including
six by Pakistani courts and two
by the Indian judiciary.
The references, included in the
second paragraph of the order,
mentioned the cases of “Jagjit
Singh vs State of Haryana (AIR
2007 SC 590)” and “Rajendra
Singh Rana vs Swami Prasad
Maurya (AIR 2007 SC 1305)”
without giving details.
The order said these eight
judicial verdicts showed that the
Supreme Court, while exercising
the power of judicial review,
could examine rulings given by
the Speaker of the National
Assembly or lower house of
parliament.
