The Supreme Court of Pakistan continues to hear the NRO petitions while Advocate General Sindh has submitted the list of NRO beneficiaries in the court, a private TV reported Wednesday. Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhary has remarked that review court isn’t authorized to do away with criminal cases. When the hearing resumed today, Sindh AG presented the list of NRO beneficiaries according to which criminal cases against MQM Chief Altaf Hussain, Babar Ghori, Farooq Sattar and Shoaib Bokhari were dropped. AG couldn’t present the order of provincial government on which CJ remarked that review board wasn’t authorized to drop criminal cases and only provincial government could do so.”If the government didn’t order to drop these cases they still exist,” CJ observed. Yesterday, NAB presented the list of 248 NRO beneficiaries in the court. Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhary remarked that dropping cases didn’t mean the complete pardon to the culprits. He remarked that NRO was misused to benefit some culprits who were declared innocent by the ordinance.
