Pakistan: Sugar inquiry commission illegal, says mills


Islamabad: Sugar millers from Pakistan have reiterated their stand that the Sugar inquiry commission set up to investigate the sugar crisis is illegal. Makhdoom Ali Khan, the counsel representing the millers argued in the Islamabad High Court stating that it was constituted violating the rules and its report should be considered illegal.

Khan represented the Pakistan Sugar Mill Association in the court and the hearing will continue further before the divisional bench comprising Justice Aamer Farooq and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb.
The PSMA is against the report of the commission based on which the government has initiated a crackdown on the millers.

The Pakistan government set up the committee to investigate the sudden spike in the sugar rates and the shortage of sugar in the market at the beginning of this year. The commission had held the millers responsible for hoarding the sugar and creating an artificial shortage in the market.
