IHC rejects intra-court appeal filed Sugar mills owners'
Court stated constitution and report of commission, formed to identify those responsible for crisis.
ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Tuesday rejected the intra-court appeal filed by sugar mill owners against the formation of the commission.
A two-judge bench of the Islamabad High Court (IHC), while announcing verdict in the case today (Tuesday) which it had reserved on July 24, allowed authorities to continue their action against people responsible for sugar crisis.
Justice Mian Gul Hasan Aurangzeb and Justice Lubna Saleem Pervez, in the verdict, rejected the appeal by the owners, upholding the earlier decision of the single bench.
The court stated that constitution and report of commission, formed to identify those responsible for the sugar crisis, cannot be declared null and void merely on suspicion of technical issues.
On July 24, the IHC reserved its judgment on an appeal of the Sugar Mills Association against the constitution of the sugar inquiry commission.
The petitioners had called for the sugar inquiry report released on May 21 to be declared void and the actions ordered by the prime minister in this regard suspended.
