IHC dismisses CCP chairperson, 2 others

Staff Report

ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Thursday dismissed Vadiyya Khalil as chairperson of the Competition Commission of Pakistan (CCP) along with two other members.
In October 2018, the federal cabinet had dismissed Vadiyya Khalil and the two members of CCP due to accusations for nepotism and corruption.
However, in February 2020, IHC annulled their notification of dismissal and reinstated them with immediate effect.
The federal government had filed an intra-court appeal against the decision of the single bench of the high court, which was sustained.
