Govt not informed of any arrest order against PM

ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan government has not been notified in writing of any arrest order against Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf issued by the Supreme Court, a cabinet minister said on Tuesday.

Information Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira also took issue with the “timing” of the decision, coming as thousands of protesters led by a populist cleric camp out in the capital demanding the immediate dissolution of parliament.
