SC grounds 16 pilots, 65 cabin crew members for holding fake degrees
The decision was taken by a three-member bench of the apex court, headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar, during the hearing of the case relating to fake degrees of cabin crew members and pilots. The chief justice had taken notice of alleged appointment of pilots holding fake qualifications in January last year.
During the proceedings, the legal counsel of Civil Aviation Authority’s (CAA) informed the top court that all degrees have been verified except six of those belonging to the members who are currently out of the country.
The counsel for the national flag carrier said six foreign degrees remained unverified, while all others have been authenticated.
“The impression is that action is being taken in haste over the court order,” the top judge remarked in response. “We do not want to halt anyone’s source of income. The certificates on the basis of which the licenses of pilots and cabin crew members were suspended should be accurate,” CJP Nisar further observed.
