KARACHI: An appellate bench of High Court of Sindh (SHC) comprising Justice Aqeel Ahmed Abbasi and Justice Zulfiqar Ahmed Khan on Tuesday ordered issuance of notices to respondent custom officials in a petition filed by United Tiles.
The petitioner challenged the denial of exemption to the importers under SRO 497 of 2009. The bench after hearing the counsel from Franklin Law Associates after hearing initial arguments ordered issuance of notices to respondents for Jan 18.
The same bench also ordered issuance of notices for Jan 18 in a petition filed by Hill Weaving Factory which imported a consignment of artificial coated leather. The petitioner filed the GD which was rejected on the basis that importer deliberately mentioned the wrong PCT. The petitioner side maintains that SRO 492 is not applicable to them. The petitioner moved SHC for implementation of its verdict.
The same bench also ordered release of a consignment of LED lights on ground of consistency following an interim order/arrangement made in a leading case. The consignment was to be released on payment of differential amount with the nazir of SHC.
