SHC defers petition seeking mutilation of goods

KARACHI: A request to allow mutilation of goods was deferred till Dec 09 by a custom appellate bench of High Court of Sindh (SHC) allowing time to petitioner side for submitting rejoinder.

The bench earlier heard Sohail Muzaffar advocate who requested the court to allow mutilation of the goods imported as some part of the consignment contain serviceable goods loaded mistakenly.

The department opposed the plea on ground that a new proviso has been added to the section 27 of the Customs Act 1969 after which new goods are to be slapped with at least 50 per cent of the duty. The goods cannot be taken as scrap and at this stage plea for mutilation is belated and not acceptable to the department, the counsel for department maintained.

As the counsel for petitioner pressed for relief, the bench asked him to file a rejoinder to the reply submitted by the department so that the petition is decided on merit.
