The Supreme Court today directed the Ministry of Interior and Civil Aviation Authority to get all pilots’ degrees verified and submit the report by February 1.

The Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar summoned DG CAA over the issue of fake degrees of pilots. 

“Tell us, if the pilots have real degrees or fake? How can we get the degrees verified,” remarked CJP while addressing DG CAA.

“We will seek a reply from [relevant] airlines and CAA in a week,” observed CJP.

The court then ordered the relevant authorities to assure that the degrees of pilots are verified and submit a report about inquiry or investigation pertaining to appointments of pilots made on the basis of fake degrees or certificates.

On Friday, CJP Mian Saqib Nisar had issued directions DG CAA Karachi to produce the record of movement of private planes/jets on all airports during the last 15 days.
