KARACHI: Notices were issued for Sept 28 to Chief Collector, Appraisement, East Shaikh Rasheed and other custom officials in a petition challenging demand of “Climate Certificate”.

Earlier a Customs Appellate bench comprising Justice Munib Akhtar and Justice Omar Siyal heard Ms Dil Khurram Shaheen advocate, counsel for petitioner Brother Recyling Unit which imported a consignment of scrap/used tyres.

The consignment is lying on the port since many days despite petitioner filed all documents including “Environment Certificate” but the Chief Collector Custom, Appraisement East wrote down a note asking the petitioner/importer to file a “Climate Certificate”.

There is nothing like “Climate Certificate” recognized by the law, the counsel for petitioner maintained in her initial arguments.

The bench then ordered issuance of notices to the respondents forSept 28.
