"Yusuf Raza Gilani, Pakistan’s prime minister, made a rare appearance in the supreme court in a fresh attempt to fend off mounting pressure from judges to re-open corruption cases against the president. ... The crisis intensified on Monday when judges began contempt of court proceedings against the prime minister for refusing to obey a two-year old order to write to Swiss authorities to ask them to re-open a graft case brought against Mr Zardari in the 1990s."
