LHC rules against shifting of three sugar mills owned by Sharif family

LHC rules against shifting of three sugar mills owned by Sharif family”

The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Monday declared relocation of Sharif family's three sugar mills "illegal", ARY News reported.

Hearing a petition filed by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Jahangir Tareen, Chief Justice Mansoor Ali Shah while heading a two-member bench ordered to shift back Haseeb Waqas, Ittefaq, and Chaudhry Sugar Mills to their original location within a time period of three months, in an apparent blow to the former first family now embroiled in NAB references after the Panama case verdict.

The LHC had also observed during a previous hearing that the sugar mills were relocated flouting court orders and disregarding the ban imposed by the government on the establishment of new mills.

In May, the bench had reserved its verdict on shifting of the three sugar mills after counsel for all parties involved concluded their arguments.

The verdict was given on application of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Jahangir Tareen.

Ahsan argued that the three sugar mills of the Sharif family completed the shifting in blatant violation of stay granted by different courts.

The court ruled that all three sugar mills - namely Ittefaq Sugar Mills, Haseeb Waqas Sugar Mills and Chaudhry Sugar Mills - be moved back at earlier location within three months time frame.

"Environmental laws were also ignored in shifting of the mills", he said, adding that the appellant mills had been shifted in cotton growing areas, which would damage the cotton industry.
