KCCI tenants informed not to pay any attention to ETPB’s biased decision in false, baseless reference

KARACHI: President Karachi Chamber of Commerce & Industry Muffasar Atta Malik has informed its tenants that although the decision in a false and bogus case about the ownership of KCC&I’s Building has been given against the Chamber by Chairman Evacuee Property Trust Board (ETPB) but it is not the final decision.In a letter, President KCCI added that ETPB cannot compel for compliance of the Chairman’s decision until and unless specific directions are passed to KCC&I by the competent court of law.

He pointed out that the Karachi Chamber challenged the maintainability of Evacuee Reference before Hon’ble High Court of Sindh at Karachi through Constitution Petition No.D-2464/2017 and the Hon’ble High Court directed for disposal of Evacuee Reference in accordance with law, therefore, the unjust decision by the Chairman shall be brought before Hon’ble High Court of Sindh through CP No.D-2464/2017. He categorically stated that a false and baseless Reference was filed by ETPB before its Chairman in connivance with the illegal occupants of KCC&I Building, who are members of PML (N) and the Chairman’s decision is outcome of the favor extended by a member of PML (N) to other member of PML (N).

Muffasar Malik said that in addition to CP No.2464/2017, KCC&I will defend its right by filing appeal against the ETPB Chairman’s decision before the next appropriate forum and will utilize all available means to get the unjust and biased decision of ETPB Chairman struck down even if we have to go to the Hon’ble Supreme Court of Pakistan for seeking justice. He mentioned that since the initial stage of the Evacuee Reference, KCC&I was anticipating unjust decision therefore KCC&I Office Bearers continued issuing press statements from time to time in order to highlight the biased approach and misuse of powers by Chairman ETPB against KCC&I and in favour of members of PML (N).

President KCCI explicitly informed that the tenants should not pay any attention to ETPB’s biased decision in the said false and baseless reference. The building belongs to members of Karachi Chamber of Commerce & Industry and the members of Managing Committee & Office Bearers, elected representatives of Businessmen Group/ Business & Industrial Community, are custodians of this property and will fight for it till the last resort which may take years, he added.
