Understand NRO Case NRO List Pakistan PM Yousuf Raza Gilani is not an Honest Man says Pakistan Supreme Court

What is National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) case or NRO order?

The notorious NRO granted amnesty to politicians, political workers and bureaucrats who were accused of corruption, embezzlement, money laundering, murders and terrorism

Gen (retd) Musharraf promulgated the NRO after striking a deal with PPP leader Benazir Bhutto in order to grant amnesty to all those against whom politically-motivated cases were registered between Jan 1, 1986, and Oct 12, 1999.

Media reported that a majority of the NRO beneficiaries have been bureaucrats and government officials which includes 34 politicians.

Supreme Court of Pakistan struck down the National Reconciliation Ordinance, a graft amnesty issued by former President Pervez Musharraf that benefited Zardari and over 8,000 others in 2009.

Since then, the court has been pressuring the government to write to Swiss authorities to reopen the money laundering cases against Zardari.

NRO is nothing but an order which made crimes legal in Pakistan.
Media has reported that 8000 Pakistani Criminals including president of Pakistan and 34 Pakistani politicians who have benefited from the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO), promulgated by former president Pervez Musharraf on Oct 5, 2007.
This ordinance “grants amnesty to all those against whom politically-motivated cases were registered between Jan 1, 1986, and Oct 12, 1999.”
Thе NRO wаѕ a black law and іt had defamed Pakistan those that had plundered the national exchequer and looted the public money, those that conducted manslaughter and those that wеrе involved in corruption at a massive scale had bееn benefited from the NRO

After that Pakistan Supreme Court cancelled the law or order which made the crimes legal and pardoned all the criminals, rich and powerful criminals of Pakistan.

SC had set the deadline of January 10, 2012.

The deadline set by the Supreme Court for the government to implement the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) verdict is expiring today (Monday).

The Supreme Court set a seven-day deadline to implement the NRO verdict, which includes an order to the government to write a letter to the Swiss authorities to reopen cases against President Asif Ali Zardari.

After that Pakistan Supreme Court Justice Asif Saeed Khosa warned that action would be initiated against those responsible irrespective of their status and office and no more deadlines would be given.


Pakistan Supreme Court said that Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani is not an honest man as he had not lived up to his constitutional oath.

Justice Asif Saeed Khosa, heading a five-judge bench, said the PM did not appear to be a “sagacious” person as evident from his defiance of the court orders in the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) case.

Further Court said that the president and the prime minister as well as the law minister could be disqualified from getting elected.

After that Judge read out the six options for the court to proceed with the matter of NRO implementation.

SC bench said that their loyalty is towards their Political Party and not to the Pakistan Constitution.

The bench contended that the Pakistan People's Party-led government's refusal to write a letter to Swiss authorities to reopen cases of alleged money laundering against Zardari went against the Constitution and the Quran.

The bench listed six options for the government, including action against the premier for contempt of court and declaring Gilani ineligible to be a member of parliament for five years – and referred the case to Chief Justice Iftikhar Gilani. The bench recommended that the Chief Justice form a larger bench to hear the matter on January 16.

Announcing the verdict, the bench headed by Justice Asif Saeed Khosa said: "The government is not taking interest to observe the order for the last two years. We know that the actions we are about to take, they may be unpleasant."
