The chief justice says if he doesn’t make a decision now, he will have to come explain in person
The Supreme Court has given Prime Minister Imran Khan one day to decide whether he wants to have his Bani Gala property regularised and submit the fine.
If he doesn’t make a decision today (Monday), he will have to come submit an explanation in person.
Chief Justice Saqib Nisar made these remarks during a hearing against illegal construction in Bani Gala.
Imran Khan raised this issue himself so now he should resolve it, said the top judge. He should be an example for others, he observed.
If you want to pay the fine and have your house regularised, you shouldn’t delay it, said Justice Nisar. The government isn’t doing anything about the issue, he lamented.
The prime minister’s lawyer Babar Awan said that he is ready to pay the fine.
