KARACHI: An Appellate bench of High Court of Sindh comprising Justice Munib Akhtar and Justice Arshad Hussain Khan  on Tuesdayexpressed anger over defiance of its order passed on previous date and asked a report that why consignment in dispute was not shifted to Common Pool Fund Bonded Ware House.

The bench was hearing a constitution petition filed by Horizon International which imported Grey Fabric from Dubai. The bench also said that when apex court remanded back the case and when the allegation of Indian origin are not proved, the case must have been decided by the respondent Custom officials.

The petitioners/importers maintained that the fabric in dispute was of China origin and as per Bill of Landing (B/L) it was lawfully imported from Dubai’s free port.

The customs disputed the same alleging that no company in China make the fabric in dispute. The SHC however as an interim arrangement ordered release of the consignments on payment of custom duty and other taxes but the department preferred an appeal against this order.
