Caselaw

Una coalición de vecinos envió una carta de petición a la Corte Suprema para cuestionar la construcción por parte del organismo estatal Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) de una estación de la red eléctrica en el barrio, concretamente en una propiedad designada como parte del “cinturón verde”.

A coalition of residents sent a letter of petition to the Supreme Court to challenge the Water and Power Development Authority's (WAPDA) construction of an electricity grid station in their neighborhood, on designated "green belt" property. The Court heard the matter as a human rights case, as Article 184 (3) of the Pakistan Constitution provides original jurisdiction to the Supreme Court to take up and determine any matter concerning the enforcement of fundamental rights of public importance.
