ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court on Tuesday directed the parties to submit a related record while hearing the customs matter involving Customs Appellate Tribunal and Model Customs Collectorate Islamabad. The IHC Division Bench, comprising of Justice Athar Minallah and Justice Hassan Aurangzeb, heard the cases and issued directives.
The bench had also dated in office the hearing on matters filed by DG Intelligence and Investigation against Malik Muhammad Ajmal Khan. The M/s Comfort Sales Corporation had filed the case against ATIR and Customs Department.
The M/s Comfort Sales Corporation had challenged the act of recovery of said amount by Commissioner Inland Revenue of Large Taxpayers’ Unit Islamabad.
The ATIR was also made a respondent in the case as the tribunal had upheld the departmental decision regarding the issuance of show cause notice and demand of recovery of outstanding tax amount under the head of federal excise duty.
The M/s Comfort Sales Corporation had prayed the court that the FBR office had issued a recovery notice to the company which did not hold lawful grounds.
The appellant had prayed the court to declare the act as illegal and without any lawful authority and an interim stay may be granted against the recovery proceedings.
The M/s Comfort Sales Corporation had also mentioned that the departmental obligations were not met amid processing the notice of recovery demand as the adjudication did not redress the grievances of the appellant.
