The British Virgin Island High Court has withdrawn orders to freeze the offshore assets of Pakistan International Airlines as settlement in the Reko Diq case, giving back control to the airline, a private TV channel reported. Attorney General for Pakistan Khalid Jawed Khan shared a statement, calling it a “great level victory for Pakistan”. “Receiver removed from Roosevelt hotel, NY and Scribe hotel, Paris,” read the statement, referring to the hotels that PIA owns abroad and the control of which was sought as compensation against the cancellation of a copper and gold mining license.

Great victory for PIA and Pakistan. We won this together,” the airline said. PIA CEO Air Marshal Arshad Malik sais the airline’s valuable assets had been secured, termed the development a “great victory for Pakistanis”. Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Farrukh Habib said the High Court of British Virgin Islands had recalled all of its earlier orders, passed against the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) in the Reko Diq case. In a tweet, he congratulated the entire nation on such a great legal victory for the PIA and Pakistan. “Congratulations Pakistan!
