SC allows Arshad Malik to continue working as PIA’s CEO
ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Wednesday allowed Air Marshal Arshad Malik to carry out his duties as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA).
A three-member SC bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Gulzar Ahmed heard the petition regarding the appointment of the CEO of PIA.
During the course of proceedings, the CJP remarked that the coronavirus had entered the country through airports from abroad and it all happened due to the negligence of authorities concerned. Everyone was talking about the coronavirus but no measures were taken to contain the virus.
AG Khalid Jawed Khan pleaded before the court that Air Marshal Arshad Malik was a capable man. The national carrier had 12 CEOs during the last nine years. He said handing over control of the institutions to unions would destroy them. The union members had locked a former CEO in a room, who was later rescued by his friend, he added. – APP
