BAHAWALPUR: As the issue for writing a letter to Swiss authorities gains momentum, Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani said on Thursday that he would rather be incarcerated for contempt of court than be handed a death penalty for violating Article 6 of the Constitution.
Speaking to a gathering of Islamia University’s students in Bahawalpur, Gilani said that he is not writing a letter to the Swiss authorities according to the rules of business and Constitution. “If I write the letter, it will be a violation of the Article 6 of the Constitution.”
