Islamabad: Former Pakistan Prime Minister Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani on Friday filed a review petition in the country’s Supreme Court against the conviction in contempt case.
A seven-member bench of the apex court headed by Justice Nasirul Mulk had convicted Gilani in NRO implementation case and sentenced him until rising of the court on April 26, 2012.
On June 19, 2012, a three-member bench of the top court headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry had disqualified Gilani from holding a seat of the parliament for five years.
Gilani had moved the court against the disqualification but did not challenge his conviction.
On Wednesday, the SC gave him a chance to file review petition against the conviction within seven days.
