He said, these orders were issued by Nargis Sethi on the directions of former trade minister, while he (Abdul Jabbar Memon) has already been appointed on this designation. Later on Prime Minster (PM) cancelled the orders of Amin Fahim.

The Petitioner further said, a 4-member larger bench headed by former acting Chief Justice (CJ) Justice Javed Iqbal had issued the stay order on January 31, 2011 against illegal recruitments and promotions in PQA.

While ignoring the orders of court, former minister for Ports and Shipping Babar Ghauri recruited 455 persons from grade 2 to 21 illegally in PQA, and a petition has been also filed in SC with this connection, he added.
