Gilani to file review petition against disqualification

Islamabad, Feb 2: Pakistan’s former prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has decided to file review petition against his disqualification by the Supreme Court.

According to a report by Geo News, sources said that Gilani would personally appear before the apex court on Saturday to file review petition.

Sources claimed that Gilani said he was consulting legal experts over the issue and would challenge his conviction, the News reports.

Gilani was disqualified for not complying apex court orders directing him to write a letter to Swiss authorities to reopen graft case against President Asif Ali Zardari.

However, Gilani’s successor Raja Pervez Ashraf had written the same letter after the court issued him contempt notice. (ANI)
