ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Thursday adjourned the hearing for the National Reconciliation Order (NRO) implementation case till 16 April, DawnNews reported.

The final verdict for the case will also be announced on the same date, the court said.

A seven-member bench, headed by Justice Nasir-ul-Mulk, was hearing the case on Thursday.

Attorney General (AG) Maulvi Anwarul Haq submitted a request on behalf of Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani asking for the deferment of the case verdict until the decision for the contempt of court case was announced.

The NRO implementation case and contempt of court proceedings are two different matters, the court replied.

During today’s hearing, Justice Ejaz Afzal and Justice Ather Saeed mentioned in their remarks that the prime minister was committing another act in contempt of the court by not implementing its orders.
