‘Would you want your president tried by a junior magistrate abroad?’

Punjab Governor Sardar Latif Khosa has ruled out any possibility of clash with judiciary or military and has said no martial law would be imposed, adding that the constitutional government would remain in power and no letter would be written to Swiss authorities.
He was talking to reporters after the 9th convocation of the Lahore School of Economics. The governor also said writing a letter to the Swiss government in NRO case was a non issue and the heads of states enjoyed universal immunity under UN convention.
