ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani’s counsel Barrister Aitzaz Ahsan submitted an application in the Supreme Court on Monday seeking permission to bring witnesses in the contempt of court case.

The application asked the court to allow the prime minister to call in three witnesses, Defence Secretary Nargis Sethi, former law minister Babar Awan and Secretary Law Mohammad Masood Chisti. The witnesses will try to prove to the court that the prime minister is not guilty of contempt of court.

The application also asked the court to include two summaries in the hearing of the case, dated May 21, 2010 and September 21, 2010.

The summaries were sent by secretary and minister of law and justice to the prime minister’s office advising him “not to write the letter to prosecutors in Switzerland”.

The hearing of the case, under a seven-member bench headed by Justice Nasirul Mulk, will continue tomorrow (Tuesday).
