LAHORE: The Customs Appellate Tribunal bench II is incomplete for more than two years.

Customs today learnt that bench I of the tribunal was complete as it has Technical Member Umar Mehdi and Member Ghulam Murtaza Bhatti. On the other hand, the bench II has only one Member Umar Arshad. A technical member has not been appointed for more than two years.
Due to the incomplete bench, cases are being delayed.
