ISLAMABAD - Advocate Ikram Chaudhry on Monday filed an appeal in the chamber of Chief Justice of Pakistan against the July 15 order of Registrar Supreme Court returning his petition against reimposition of Petroleum Development Levy (PDL). The appeal has been filed under Order 5 Rule 3 of the Supreme Court Rules 1980, praying for setting aside the order of Registrar and fixing the petition for hearing on merit. The appellant contended that the July 15 order of the Registrar was without legal basis and also against established law. It was further contended in the appeal that appellants instant petition was constitutionally and legally fit under Article 184(3) of the Constitution and order of the Registrar Office should be set aside in the public interest for the enforcement of fundamental rights.

The appellant, however, submitted in his appeal that the petition was maintainable under Article 184(3) of the Constitution as subject matter of the petition was related to the enforcement of article 2A, 4,9,14,37 and 38 of the Constitution. About the second objection, the appellant stated that he did file the requisite certificate under the prescribed order XXV Rule 6 of the Supreme Court Rules 1980. However, he submitted that a separate certificate was being filed with the petition.
