Sub-Committee of Committee on delegated legislation

Islamabad, January 08, 2018 (PPI-OT):Sub-Committee of Committee on delegated legislation in its meeting was briefed by the Attorney General of Pakistan and Ministry of Law and Justice on the issue of enhancement of SCO’s area of operation. The sub Committee was presided over by convener of the committee Senator Muhammad Daud Khan Achakzai, Advocate.

Among others suggestions the attorney general said there is no impediment in the way of processing an application pending with the Pakistan telecommunication authority for grant of a license which would further the cause of national security provided it is confined to the business being carried out by the SCO. The ministry of IT, however, desired that the matter is highly important and therefore it required more time for deliberations.

DG SCO and other Officials of the SCO said that SCO will remain stick to the mandate. Regarding Etisilat, the AG informed that the company has failed to fulfil its commitment and has yet to pay huge amount. The matter could be taken to International Court of Justice, he said. The members of the Committee agreed to the suggestions given by the Attorney General. The meeting was attended by Senators and senior officers of the ministry of Law and Justice, SCO, IT and other attached departments.
