Pakistan Cabinet Approves Reconstitution of IT Tribunals to Expedite Tax Cases

Islamabad, In a move to streamline the resolution of pending tax-related cases, the Pakistan Cabinet has approved the reconstitution of Information Technology (IT) Tribunals, announced Law Minister Azam Nazeer Tarar during a press conference held in Islamabad today. This reform aims to expedite the disposal of cases involving billions of rupees.

According to Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Minister Tarar highlighted that Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has relinquished his powers concerning the appointment of judicial and technical members of these tribunals, shifting to a more transparent hiring process involving Chartered Accountants.

Additionally, the Law Minister addressed concerns raised by a judge of the Islamabad High Court in a letter to the Chief Justice of Pakistan, firmly rejecting any notion that the judiciary is under pressure from external entities. On a related note, Minister for Information and Broadcasting Attaullah Tarar underscored the importance of national security, advocating for an in-camera briefing by the Attorney General of Pakistan to ensure sensitive matters remain confidential.
