KARACHI: The Supreme Court suspended an order of the Sindh High Court regarding payment of dues to the affected people of the Fazaia Housing Scheme.
The overseas Pakistani, who had invested in the scheme, approached the apex court against the SHC judgement and sought proper compensation.
The three-judge bench headed by Justice Faisal Arab suspended the May 19 order of a divisional bench of the SHC and issued notices to the National Accountability Bureau and other respondents.
The lawyer for petitioners Haseeb Jamali submitted that the petitioners invested their money around five years ago and instead of principal amount, they must be properly compensated with the mark-up and interest.
In its May 19 order, the SHC had allowed the Pakistan Air Force and builders to settle all the liabilities of the Fazaia Housing Scheme and refund the money of the allottees within six months.
