Finally Pak Gov's famously delayed letter reached Switzerland, only to hear 'No'

"After a prolonged stand-off with the Supreme Court, the dismissal of former Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani and the threat of another Premier facing the same fate, the federal government had requested the Swiss government to reopen the cases last November. In his reply to Pakistan’s request, Switzerland’s Attorney General told the Law Ministry that the case could not be reopened because it had become time-barred under the Swiss law."

Switzerland not to reopen Zardari graft cases - The Hindu

In Malayalam there is a proverb - "Rogi icchichathum paalu, vidyan kalpichathu paalu", means patient like to have milk as medicine and doctor prescribed milk as medicine. What a magnificent law Swiss government has!!! Only thing people have to do is delay it, delay it and delay it - which is not at all complicated in South Asian environment.
