SHC seeks compliance report in polythene bags case

KARACHI : A customs appellate bench of High Court of Sindh (SHC) ordering provisional release of a consignment  of laminated polythene bags sought compliance report by February 08, 2019.

The bench was hearing a petition filed by Samad Trading Company through law firm Franklin Law Associates against detention of comsignment over valuation dispute and alleged incorrect PCT heading mentioned in Goods Declaration.

The  custom authorities of Port Muhammad Bin Qasim ordered detention maintaining that  these were woolen bags and thus valuation is different from the laminated polythene bags.

A test ordered by SHC established that  GD and PCT heading stated by the importer is correct. The importer however in order to avoid delay  expressed readiness to submit differential amount. [the_ad id="31605"] The bench allowing the request ordered customs to release the goods and report compliance fixing Feb 8 as next date of hearing.
