K-Electric Shocking Revelation About Government’s Corruption
The Sindh High Court (SHC) once again directed K-Electric (K-E) on Tuesday to submit the agreement regarding the sale and purchase of the power utility to a Chinese firm.
A two-judge bench, comprising justices Nadeem Akhtar and Faheem Ahmed Siddiqui, also directed the additional attorney-general to satisfy the court on how he could represent the private foreign firm, Shanghai Electric Company. Meanwhile, the bench repeated notices to the Shanghai Electric Company through the Chinese embassy in Islamabad to file comments regarding the purchase of the power utility.
A group of non-profit organisations had approached the court seeking an inquiry into the facts and issues relating to K-E through appointment of an independent judicial commission. Earlier, Advocate Irfan Munawar Gill undertook to file his power of attorney and comments on behalf of the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra).
