ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani on Wednesday said he would appear before the seven-member bench of the Supreme Court on April 26.

“I will appear before the Supreme Court tomorrow,” Gilani told his cabinet, while chairing the weekly cabinet meeting here at the PM Secretariat.

Gilani said he had always honoured the court’s decisions and fully respects its verdicts.

Moreover, the prime minister announced during the meeting that if any other cabinet member wished to accompany him, he was welcome.

Interior Minister Rehman Malik said the entire cabinet would accompany the prime minister when he appears before the apex court.

Gilani will be making his third appearance on Thursday in front of the SC bench, headed by Justice Nasirul Mulk, hearing a contempt case against him.

The court is expected to either exonerate the prime minister of all charges, or slap him with contempt.

Gilani had earlier appeared before the Supreme Court on Jan 19 and Feb 13.
