ISLAMABAD The Public Accounts Committee (PAC) is scheduled to meet on Tuesday (tomorrow) to discuss the issues including the inquiry into the mega scandal regarding sale of Pakistans Embassys building in Tokyo at a throwaway price in 2007. After surfacing of the issue of this sale in the media in last month, the PAC had directed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to present a detailed report on the issue before the Committee. According to the media reports, Pakistans Embassys building in Tokyo had been sold in 2007 at a throwaway price. The building, built on a plot measuring 2249.10 square metres, had been sold for 6.3 billion yens while the actual value of the land at time of the sale in 2007 was stated to be around 12 billion yens, as per the report appeared in the media. It may be mentioned here that a petition has also been filed in the Rawalpindi-based bench of the Lahore High Court against the sale. I have also filed a petition against sale of the said building in the Rawalpindi-based bench of the Lahore High Court, said Supreme Courts lawyer, Muhammad Sadiq Mughal while talking to TheNation. Sadiq Mughal said that his petition is still pending in the court. I also had been approached by Pakistani community in Japan to raise the issue, he said adding that he had approached the court of the law in 2007 when the building was being sold at a throwaway price. He said that he also approached the then speaker National Assembly and deputy speaker for this matter in a bid to save the country from huge financial loss. When contacted, MNA Riaz Fatyana, a member of the Committee, said the Parliament could discuss matters which were pending in the court. Parliament can deliberate on the issue. However, he maintained that the said issue is not a sub judice matter. He said that Parliament would go for accountability of the people involved in the matter while the court was doing its own job. Talking to TheNation, former attorney general Justice (r)Malik Abdul Qayyum said that although it was mentioned in the National Assemblys rules that the sub judice matters could not be discussed in the Parliament, however, these rules are made flexible some time. If it is already pending in the court then it is a sub judice matter, he stated. Giving the example of Farah Hameed Dogar case, he said it was also in the court but was being discussed in the Parliament simultaneously. The PAC will also discuss the issue related to illegal refunding of sale taxes by the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR). In the meeting, the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Resources will present reports on the oil and gas prices. It is pertinent to mention here that On January 6, the PAC directed the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Resources, OGRA, Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Company and Sui Southern Gas Pipelines Company to submit a report within 10 days in this regard.
