Pakistan court rejects PM appeal, to indict
Islamabad, February 10, 2012
Pakistan's Supreme Court rejected an appeal by the prime minister on Friday and is set to indict him for contempt of court on Monday, a move likely to bring fresh political turmoil to the chronically unstable country.
"The appeal is dismissed," Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry said in court, reading the decision of the eight-member bench. – Reuters
