Not unwilling to write letter but it’s unconstitutional, says Kaira

Minister for Information and Broadcasting Qamar Zaman Kaira on Friday claimed he had never said the government would not write the letter to Swiss authorities, but the government’s stance was that writing the letter was unconstitutional. Speaking to reporters, Kaira said he was misquoted by a section of the media on his statement on the issue of writing a letter to the Swiss authorities. “I never said that the party’s stance was against writing the letter.
I had said that the federal cabinet would decide on the issue,” he said. The information minister said his party respected all institutions of the country, including the judiciary. He further said the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) did not have any conflict with the judiciary. “The PPP has given many sacrifices for democracy…all institutions will have to work together to strengthen it,” Kaira said. “The government cannot accept any undemocratic behaviour in the country and parliament will guard the system,” he said. The Supreme Court had on June 19 dismissed Yousaf Raza Gilani as prime minister after convicting him of contempt in April for refusing to reopen the multi-million-dollar cases against the president.
