Former prime minister Raja Pervez Ashraf filed an unconditional apology in the Supreme Court of Pakistan on Tuesday over a contempt notice issued by the top court in the Rental power projects case. Wasim Sajjad, lawyer for Raja Ashraf, registered an unconditional apology letter in the Supreme Court of Pakistan and also requested the bench hearing the case to allow the withdrawal of Raja’s notice sent to the Chief Justice of Pakistan.
Earlier in March The Supreme Court had released a contempt of court notice to ex- PM Raja Pervez Ashraf, in the rental power projects case, for attempting to influence it by writing a letter to the Chief Justice asking him to constitute a commission to examine the RPP case. The chief justice stated while giving his judgment that Raja Pervez Ashraf had tried to approach the court for a separate commission which was tantamount to trying to get “favours from the court without the finishing of the due process.”
The court also noticed that the writing a letter in his official capacity also amounted to impacting on the court.
