Pakistan's attorney gen resigns
Pakistan's attorney general resigned yesterday in a dispute connected to pressure from the supreme court to re-open a money laundering case against President Asif Ali Zardari.
"Yes I resigned from my post. Neither the law minister nor the law ministry were cooperating with me," Anwar Mansoor told AFP.
He said he submitted his resignation to Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, adding in English: "Whether it is accepted or not, I'm not joining".
The supreme court on Thursday directed the attorney general to sit with the law ministry and an anti-corruption watchdog to prepare a report due next Monday on efforts to re-open money laundering cases in Switzerland.
