    The ongoing political crisis in Pakistan could take a decisive turn today as its embattled government will appear before the Supreme Court, which will hear the NRO implementation case. The hearing assumes importance as the court had earlier warned the Pakistan government to reopen graft case against President Zardari or face dismissal.

    He may be sitting in far away London, but a decision he took as President could well be the undoing of the present Pak government.

    An ordinance that pardoned 8000 plus politicians and bureaucrats facing corruption, embezzlement, money laundering and even murder and terrorism charges was subsequently struck down by the Supreme Court, opening doors to restart cases including those against President Zardari who allegedly has upto $60 million in commissions.

    While his two quick and ill-explained visits to Dubai right in the middle of the crisis back home have only managed to raise eyebrows, the Pakistan President has put up a brave face in public.

    Just last week Pakistani President President said,” NRO case and Swiss Court are history for us. Under my rule it will never happen. With only 15 months left in my term, the new Government can do whatever they want to do.”

    But a couple of quick and high profile arrests of businessmen granted amnesty earlier, a day before a seven judge bench takes up the NRO case betray the nervousness in the government. It is a nervousness given the fact that the Supreme Court has been particularly harsh in its assessment of not just the government but even the Prime Minister himself.

    The fact that when the seven judge bench of the Supreme Court takes up the case it will mull options that include proceeding against the PM or even the President, declare him ineligible to hold office or even form a commission on its own to get the verdict implementedis what is keeping the government on its toes.

    A government that has turned increasingly unpopular, an army that is waiting in the wings, undoubtedly the judiciary seems all set to have the last word in a issue that has led to the govt fast losing its last line of defence.
