Islamabad: Former Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf has submitted unconditional apology to the Supreme Court over a contempt of court notice in connection to the Rental Power Plants scam.

The former premier submitted a written apology to the Supreme Court in which he took back a letter he had earlier written. Advocate Waseem Sajjad has filed unconditional apology on behalf of Raja Pervez Ashraf. The former PM has also offered to withdraw his letter.

The letter asked the court to constitute an inquiry commission comprising Dr Shoaib Suddle to probe into the multi-billion RPPs scandal, independent of the ongoing investigations being conducted by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

In March, the Supreme Court had issued a contempt notice to Ashraf over the letter, admonishing him for attempting to initiate an inquiry commission.
