This is a photograph I took in 2009 of Pakistan's Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani who Pakistan's Supreme Court ruled today was disqualified to hold office. Gilani's disqualification comes after his conviction of contempt after he failed to pursue corruption charges against President Asif Ali Zardari. At the conviction in April this year Gilani was spared jail. The case ends a long-term feud between the Pakistani Government and the country’s judiciary. Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry told a the court: ‘Since no appeal was filed therefore Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani stands disqualified as a member of the Majlis-e-Shoora [parliament].'
