ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani's counsel, Barrister Aitzaz Ahsan said on Wednesday that President Asif Ali Zardari enjoys immunity throughout the world, DawnNews reported.

While talking to the media representatives outside the Supreme Court, Ahsan said that on March 8 he was not present in the Supreme Court when the PM had been ordered to write a letter to the Swiss authorities.

Ahsan was speaking in regards to contempt of court case against the PM.

The counsel said that the Attorney General Maulvi Anwarul Haq was ordered by the SC to write a letter as he is the prosecutor of the case.

“I will give the justification to the court on March 19 and on March 21 about the decision of not writing a letter to the Swiss authorities - whether it was right or wrong and will also give clarifications regarding the immunity granted to the president,” said Ahsan.

Earlier on March 8, the Supreme Court of Pakistan had ordered Gilani to write a letter to the Swiss authorities.
