Hearing against the sugar prices is underway here on Friday in Supreme Court of Pakistan. Last day SC directed all the concerned authorities to ensure the sale of sugar at Rs 40/kg throughout the country in compliance with the courts verdict. The SC bench headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry ordered the authorities to ensure the sale of sugar at specified price in all the four provinces till the settlement of the petitions being heard by the court on the issue. The bench also suggested setting up an independent commission to specify the sugar prices in the country. The bench directed all the stakeholders, including the representatives of Sugar Mills Association, Attorney General and the Advocate General of all the four provinces, to mull over the suggestion and submit their response Friday. Meanwhile, the Supreme Court threw out Thursday an appeal filed by the sugar dealers against the Lahore High Court's verdict of fixing sugar prices at Rs 40/kg. Additionally the apex court slapped a fine on the dealers association for pretending to be a registered body. The Supreme Court observed that as the sugar dealers association is not a registered body its appeal is unacceptable.
