KARAHCHI: A customs appellate bench of High Court of Sindh (SHC) comprising Justice Aqeel Ahmed Abbasi and Justice Abdil Malik Gaddi ordered deblocking of ID of Sahara Welfare Trust while giving time to the custom authorities for Jan 24 to respond to the point raised by the petitioner.

The ID was blocked for non-payment of customs duties and taxes in respect of five consignments of old clothes while the petitioner trust claims exemption from duty and taxes. It maintained that more consignment either have arrived or will be arriving shortly and delay in release would badly effect the old citizens house at the old home established by the trust.
