Pak SC adjourns hearing of petition against Zardari
Islamabad: Pakistan`s Supreme Court on Tuesday adjourned till September 10 the hearing of a petition asking it to bar President Asif Ali Zardari from travelling abroad after he completes his term.
A two-member bench heard the case. During the proceedings, Deputy Attorney General Imran-ul-Haq appeared on behalf of the federal government and requested the court to give him some time for filing a reply.
Petitioner Shahid Aurakzai said Zardari would complete his tenure on September 8 and requested the court not to adjourn the case for long.
Leaders belonging to Zardari`s Pakistan People`s Party (PPP) have repeatedly said that he will join active politics and work for the party after leaving the presidency.
Some political leaders have called for the reopening of graft cases against Zardari that date back to the time when his slain wife Benazir Bhutto was the premier in the 1990s.
