Sindh High Court declares sugar inquiry commission, report illegal

Karachi (HRNW) The Sindh High Court declared on Monday the sugar inquiry commission and its report illegal and ordered an independent inquiry to be conducted into the shortage of sugar, and price hike.

A two-judge bench directed the government task the FIA or FBR with the responsibility of investigating the matter or form “an impartial commission”.

Owners of over 20 sugar mills in Sindh had filed a petition against the inquiry commission’s report. The petition stated that the committee members cannot be relied upon and their report favours the federal government.

The commission members include FIA Director-General Wajid Zia, Punjab Anti-Corruption Establishment DG Muhammad Goher Nafees and a representative of the Intelligence Bureau. They were hand picked by Prime Minister Imran Khan.

The government is directly involved in the matter and wants to put the blame of the sugar price hike onto mill owners through its commission, the petition added.
