ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Pakistan Asif Saeed Khosa has said that Lahore High Court’s (LHC) verdict on private school fee case has been found having several mistakes, jokingly adding that major part of the issue seems to be of English language.
According to details, Supreme Court is hearing on an appeal challenging the verdict of Lahore High Court in a case pertaining to the escalation in fee done by private schools.
Punjab Government’s lawyer is presenting his argument on LHC’s judgment before the top court.
During the course of proceedings, Justice Aizaz ul Hasan said that LHC’s decision was filled with contradictions.
“In one sentence, the judgment states that fee-hike can be done whereas another sentence says otherwise”, Justice Aizaz said.
While giving his remarks on Lahore High Court’s verdict, Chief Justice Asif Saeed Khosa was also seen agitated with the written judgement.
“In its final decision, the high court declared that the fee-hike would not be done since only 2% of students are getting affected by it. However, the court must have stated that the fee-hike is not affecting anyone considering only 2% of students will be affected by it”, Chief Justice said.
