CPEC: Supreme Court takes vital decision over multi billion dollars project


ISLAMABAD: Pakis­tan’s top judicial policymaking body has asked the country’s high courts and lower judiciary not to issue ex parte stay orders in respect of CPEC-related projects.

The National Judicial Policy Making Committee (NJPMC) headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Saqib Nisar and comprising the chief justices of four high courts and Federal Shariat Court has also asked the Planning Commission — the country’s focal organisation on the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor — to consult the Supreme Court if it requires any support in matters relating to the CPEC .

The decisions were taken at a special meeting of the NJPMC in February. About a dozen federal secretaries or their senior representatives were specially invited to the meeting in view of the importance of increasing Chinese investments and financing in Pakistan.
