LAHORE (92 News) – The Supreme Court (SC) on Tuesday reserved verdict in case pertaining to foreign accounts, foreign assets and amnesty scheme.
A three-member bench of the Supreme Court, led by Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Justice Mian Saqib Nisar, Justice Umar Bandiyal, and Justice Ejaz-ul-Ahsan, was hearing the case.
“We have utilised all the resources of future generations through taking foreign loans. We are taking loan more and more and paying interest on the loans,” the chief justice said, during the hearing. He asked that who would return these loans.
The CJP remarked that Justice Umer Atta Bandial will announce the verdict pertaining to foreign accounts, foreign assets and amnesty scheme and asked what we are leaving for our future generations.
The CJP remarked that the nation was ready to give money when the apex court talked about construction of dams, adding that loans were being taken to pay loans but no one knows who would return the money. No steps have been taken to increase country’s resources and exports, he added.
