Islamabad: Pakistan Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf on Monday appeared in the Supreme Court to face a show cause notice for failing to implement the order to write to the Swiss authorities to reopen corruption cases against President Asif Ali Zardari.

Jostled by crowds, Ashraf waved before stepping inside the court building.

The apex court had issued the notice August 8.

The order said it was unfortunate that the Prime Minister had failed to implement the court's directives.

The court had on July 25 given Ashraf time up to August 8 to write to Swiss authorities to reopen corruption cases against Zardari.

Ashraf's predecessor, Yousuf Raza Gilani, was disqualified by the court for contempt after he refused to accept the court's orders.
