ISLAMABAD The Supreme Court on Thursday observed that late Benazir Bhutto never claimed any benefit of National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) and those who have issued it must be repenting now. Benazir Bhutto had no interest in NRO, rather it was General Musharraf who wanted to become president under such an arrangement, the chief justice remarked, while heading 17-member full court hearing of the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) review petition on Thursday. The court allowed former law minister and federations counsel Dr Babar Awan to file additional documents regarding the review petition, but said it would look only those documents that were related to federation. Babar Awan completed his argument in the case. Earlier the court refused to receive the documents. When Babar Awan insisted to read out the grounds the court asked him only to read pray of his petition. Justice Asif Saeed Khan Khosa asked him Rather becoming martyr here listen to what the 17-member bench has ordered you. In response to Babar Awans arguments in favour of NRO, the chief justice said that all but some persons were happy with Supreme Courts striking down of the black law. CJP observed the case of those who considered them above law were reopened in the light of this courts decision on NRO. Federation took pride of NRO verdict and parliament described NRO bad law, he said. Though NRO was laid before the parliament but was later withdrawn; the law secretary has filed the petition but if this issue of protecting NRO would be discussed in the cabinet no member of it would defend the black law. The CJP said Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani and Interior Minister Rehman Malik opted to face the cases, while the interior minister even appeared before the courts. Federation should not support this stinking law, he said, adding that those who got NRO promulgated would be now repenting their misdeed. Babar Awan said sacred cow was now going to be exposed and NRO case was tantamount to holding trial of Benazirs grave. The CJP said: We have read books and we know who was what and who did what. The CJP told Babar Awan you are linking Benazir Bhutto to this piece of paper. She was not only Pakistani or Asian leader but an international towering personality. Paying tribute to late Benazir Bhutto the chief justice said that Benazir Bhutto was not the sort of person who would like to sign the NRO deal. She was daughter of a father who never accepted any wrong deed. You should be proud of your leader as the BB was never interested in NRO. In her book 'Reconciliation, Islam, Democracy and West she stated it was Pervez Musharraf who did it. Had she been interested in NRO she should not have actively supported the lawyers movement. She always preferred Pakistans interest, but now the beneficiaries of NRO wanted to defend it, said the CJP. During the course of hearing, Babar Awan said when NRO case decision was announced, its request was not made in the petitions. In the basic case attorney general (AG) had said he would talk separately if broad-based matters would come up. The CJP remarked that full court was sitting since last four days and asked the counsel to tell the court what were those broad-based matters. Grounds for seeking review of the decision have not been informed so far, he further remarked. Babar Awan informed the court that he would not go for restoring, reissuing and protecting the NRO. Justice Tassadque Jillani remarked that the court appreciated you as today federation was not defending the NRO. The chief justice asked him to let the aggrieved persons come forward. Babar Awan earlier submitted his formulations. He argued that there were three kinds of errors apparent on the face of the record. First, factual wrongs that include some statements and findings. Secondly, procedural wrongs that means pleading allegations, replies, rebuttals and not observance of due course under Article 10A. Third, legal errors that include violation of some laws, statues, regulations and constitution. He emphasised that in all cases and circumstances the court need to keep in mind the provision of Articles 175-2 and 10A. Justice Sarmad Jalal Osmany said Article 4 is wider enough regarding due course, while the chief justice said when the judgment was passed the Article 10A was not in vogue. Babar argued that the question of fact cannot be decided without having reply or rebuttal by the respondent or defendant. He contented that the scope of review is very wider in term of Supreme Court rules. Under Article 188 the court has power to review any judgment pronounced or any order made by it, while the Order 26 Rules 80 (1C), which is most unambiguous, talks about the discovery of new and important matter. If a matter was related then the issue should also be heard. Waseem Sajjad, representing former attorney general Malik Abdul Qayyum, prayed that the para in which FIA was directed to proceed against his client for writing to Swiss authorities to close the cases against Benazir Bhutto and Asif Ali Zardari should be expunged. The Chief Justice remarked that he was the person (Malik Qayyum), who chased the cases of Benazir Bhutto and Asif Ali Zardari and did his best to convict them when he was a judge of the Lahore High Court, but the Supreme Court had set aside that judgment. He humiliated Ms Bhutto and Asif Ali Zardari, and humiliated to the (full) extent, the CJP said. Waseem said that Malik Qayyum is very ill therefore cant walk and should be pardoned. He prayed to dispose of CMA and review petition. The court on his request passed order that authority proceed against Malik Qayyum as mandated in the law without being influenced of any observation given against him in the NRO judgment. The court also disposed of the petitions of Naveed Ahsan former chairman NAB, Danishwar Malik, ex-prosecutor general NAB, Baseer Qureshi, ex-additional prosecutor general NAB, and Raja Abdul Ghafoor ex-Advocate on Record of SC, for not cooperating with the court in the case by passing orders that the adverse remarks expressed against them in the judgment of this case should not effect to their future professional careers. The hearing was adjourned till Friday.
