AMI case adjourned till May 31
KARACHI: The hearing of a petition filed by AMI directors was adjourned till May 31 by a divisional bench of High Court of Sindh (SHC) comprising Chief Justice Sajjad Ali Shah and Justice Zulfiqar Ahmed Khan here Friday.
When the matter was taken up, the counsel for petitioners said that respondents have been asked to disclose the names of custom officials who have allegedly colluded with accused charged of forgery, facilitating illegal import of Indian cloth banned under Import Policy.
Ilyas Ahsan, Principal Appraiser, Law of Pakistan Customs sought time to file the reply at which the bench put off further hearing till May 31. Earlier, the court was informed that order passed by the bench in an application by the Directors of the AMI has been challenged before the apex court. The petition was filed by Directors of AMI, wife, sons of Capt Haleem Shaikh who alleged harassment at the hands of Customs. They maintained that they are not active directors of the company, a claim disputed by Pakistan customs who said that they are the beneficiaries of the activities by AMI.
