ISLAMAABD: Attorney General Irfan Qadir said on Wednesday he was not expecting the Supreme Court to summon the prime minister.
Speaking to media persons outside the Supreme Court, the attorney general said there was no need to invoke immunity clause of the Constitution.
He opined that no appeal could be filed against today’s ruling.
Earlier, the Supreme Court, while hearing the NRO implementation case, issued a contempt of court show-cause notice to Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf over his failure to implement court's order.
In an interim order after the hearing, the apex court summoned the prime minister on August 27 to respond to the court's notice.
"We hereby issue a notice to Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf to show cause why he may not be proceeded against for committing contempt," the court said.
"He shall appear in person on the next date of hearing." The court adjourned proceedings until Aug. 27. SAMAA
