ISLAMABAD: A five member bench of the Supreme Court has decided to refer the six options relating to the NRO implementation case to the Chief Justice for constitution of a larger bench for hearing of these options.

Announcing the verdict on NRO implementation case‚ the bench headed by Justice Asif Saeed Khosa said the six options are being handed over to the Attorney General.

01: To initiate the contempt of court proceedings against the Chief Executive and the Secretary Law for not implementing the NRO verdict.
02: To declare the chief executive ineligible from the membership of the Parliament.
03: The court may form a commission to get the verdict implemented.
04: The people themselves decide on the issue and the court exhibit patience.
05: Contempt proceedings against Chairman Nab may be initiated.
06: The action may be taken against President for violating the Constitution.

The Supreme Court said in its order in NRO implementation case that the government has failed to implement the verdict.

'The government is not taking interest to observe the order for the last two years. We knew that the actions we are about to take they may be unpleasant.'

'The court has taken oath to defend the Constitution. The prime minister respected the party over the Constitution.'

'The president in an interview to Geo News said his government would not implement one part of NRO verdict.'

As per Article 189 and 190 all institutions are bound to help the apex court, the order said.

'Prima Facie the prime minister is not an honest man and violated his oath.'

The court recommended the case to the chief justice to form a larger bench to hear the case on January 16.

A Five-member bench of Supreme Court (SC) headed by Justice Asif Saeed Khosa resumed the hearing of the case pertaining to the implementation of National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) verdict today.

APP adds: The bench directed Attorney General to put his arguments before the Court on January 16, over the issue after obtaining instructions from the authorities concerned.

The bench in its order also asked the AG to apprise as to why any of the options might not be exercised by the Court in these matters.

The bench also granted a hearing opportunity to those who might be affected from their exercise of options.

"It goes without saying that any person likely to be affected by exercise of these options may appear before this Court on the next date of hearing and address this Court in the relevant regard so that he may not be able to complain in future that he had been condemned by this Court unheard," it observed.

The AG was also directed to inform all the concerned persons about the passage of the order and also about the next date of hearing.
