Medicine prices case: CJ annoyed at granting stay by SHC

ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar expressed annoyance over granting stay order to the big lawyers by Sindh High Court (SHC) in the case pertaining to prices of medicines as the CJP asked how SHC suspended the law.

CJP remarked that the stay orders were being distributed in SHC by closing eyes. “No one fears God. Whosoever has not to work should get stipend and pension and go home,” the CJP said.

A 3-member bench of SC presided over by CJP Mian Saqib Nisar took up the case pertaining to prices of the medicines for hearing on Wednesday.

CJP while expressing annoyance at grant of stay order by Sindh High Court remarked that the big lawyers got stay orders from chamber and SHC was distributing stay orders with closing its eyes.

The CJP while ordering the SHC to decide on petitions regarding stay order within 15 days remarked if SHC would not decide, the stay order would be vacated.

He further remarked that the matters related to health and medicines should run on war footing basis.

“Change has come in Drug Regulatory Authority. However they can do what. Court is granting stay orders,” he said.

The court while seeking record pertaining to medicines from SHC had issued notices to all the parties concerned. The court adjourned the hearing of the case for indefinite period.
