Supreme Court will take up federal government’s petition against the Sindh High Court (SHC) judgment deeming the sugar commission and its report unlawful. A three-judge special bench led by Chief Justice of Pakistan Gulzar Ahmed will hear the federal government pension today (Wednesday). Last week Attorney General for Pakistan (AGP) Khalid Javed Khan, on behalf of the federal government, filed a petition against the ruling on August 17, saying that the SHC quashed the fact-finding report as well as the notifications for the inquiry commission under the Pakistan Commissions of Inquiry Act, 2017. The government’s petition added that SHC quashed the fact-finding report and the notifications on technical grounds, as that the summary for constituting the commission was initiated by interior ministry rather than the Cabinet Division and the notifications were published belatedly in the official gazette. This was despite the fact that the summary for appointing all seven members of the commission was duly approved by the federal cabinet and none of the sugar manufacturers, including the respondents ever did or could claim lack of knowledge of the proceedings of the commission.
