KARACHI - The Swiss government will withdraw the immunity of President Asif Ali Zardari if Pakistan abolishes the immunity enjoyed by its president under the constitutions of the country.
This was stated by Macaulay Franklin, the lawyer representing Government of Pakistan in Swiss cases while talking to a private TV channel.
"If the Pakistani government abolishes the presidential immunity the Swiss authorities will follow the suit."
He said that the government can write to Swiss authorities seeking details about the frozen assets, but the Swiss government cannot probe due of immunity.
Macaulay Franklin said that if the accounts were shifted to somewhere else to affect the proceeding on case it would be considered another crime under money laundering act.
He said if the cases were reopened then the Swiss authorities would probe the details of the assets and most probably will seize them.
