IHC conducted hearing of Sugar Mills Association case filed against sugar inquiry commission.

ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – The Islamabad High Court (IHC) Friday conducted hearing of the Sugar Mills Association case filed against the sugar inquiry commission, Dunya News reported.

Legal representative of the sugar industry Makhdoom Ali Khan appeared before the IHC and argued that it should be analyzed whether the inquiry commission worked fairly or not.

The counsel further said in his arguments that it must be examined whether the commission worked with an intention to draw some specific conclusion beforehand.

Makhdoom Ali Khan claimed that the self-esteem of the sugar industry was damaged through media trial.

IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah said in his remarks that it is not appropriate to hold press conference on every matter and affirmed that let the law take its course.

“The sugar report comprises fact-finding, not verdict. The Supreme Court has already sent interrogation report to concerned departments after forming a joint investigation team (JIT),” he added.
