Having failed to deliver anything tangible during his tenure and publicly mocking the apex court of the country Prime Minister Gilani must be one of the very few, if not the only, chief executives of a country in the world who is bent on demonstrating absolute disregard for the rule of law while pretending to respect the highest judicial forum in the same breath. With a feudal mindset, our PM is demonstrating that his loyalty to the person of his boss transcends his loyalty to the office he holds. All actions of the PM with regards to implementation of the NRO judgement of the Supreme Court point in this direction. In addition to contempt of court, shouldn't he be held accountable for not discharging his functions and obligations as per the oath that he took while assuming office as well?

The worthy legal czar of the PM may present all kinds of argument in attempting to justify his client's actions, the reality remains that the orders of the apex court are to be implemented whether they pertain to a PM or a (scoffed-at-by-the-PM) peon.
