SHC restrains Custom Preventive from harassing businessman

KARACHI: Hearing a constitution petition filed by a businessman FAHAD MIRZA against alleged harassment by officials of Model Customs Collectorate (Preventive) a custom appellate bench restrained the respondents from harassing the petitioner in his business activities.

Sohail Muzaffar Advocate appearing for the petitioner submitted that petitioner recovered a consignment from five accused persons and accused the petitioner of being owner of the same.

The allegation of smuggling is misconceived as articles recovered are freely importable ones and were brought into the country through proper lawful channel .

He also submitted that petitioner has obtained bail from trial court but after registration of FIR which is without jurisdiction and lawful authority, petitioner has approached the High Court  challenging the FIR.

The bench after initial hearing while ordering issuance of pre-admission notices to the respondents and Deputy Attorney General for Feb 28, directed the respondents to conduct themselves according to law and that no harassment be caused to the petitioner in respect of lawful business activities.

The bench also directed the petitioner to attend the trial court and to cooperate with the prosecution.
