SC rejects govt’s petition challenging prevention of action against sugar millers
ISLAMABAD (City News) – The Supreme Court of Pakistan has on Thursday rejected the federal government’s petition challenging the Sindh High Court (SHC) decision which prevented it from taking action against sugar mill owners in the light of recommendations by Sugar Inquiry Commission report.
The apex court ordered to maintain the SHC verdict till the next hearing. Chief Justice Gulzar Ahmed said in his remarks that sugar mills will not be benefited even if the report is nullified and the regulatory institutions cannot be barred from working.
Justice Ijazul Ahsan inquired that whether the SHC has been apprised of the Islamabad High Court (IHC) decision which it gave over the case. Attorney General Khalid Jawed Khan said the verdict has been mentioned in the petition filed by sugar millers but not in the SHC interim order.
