Sanjrani rejects reference against Gilani


Chairman Senate Sadiq Sanjrani on Monday rejected a reference seeking disqualification of ex-prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani in a Toshakhana case.

According to the ruling of the Senate chairman, the allegations against Gilani were made while he was the prime minister and a member of the National Assembly, therefore Article 63(A) does not apply to the reference against him.

The ruling further says Gilani was elected senator on March 3, 2021 and after the election of Gilani as a senator, the disqualification reference against him was not justified.

The reference was filed by Senator Azam Swati alleging that then prime minister Gilani gave expensive vehicles to two important personalities from the Toshakhana.
