Express April 26, 2010

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court (SC) on Monday directed the Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) of the Cabinet to take up the issue of the award of a controversial contract for the import of LNG to a foreign company.

The  contract, which was awarded to Four-gas company, caused one billion dollars loss to the national exchequer.

The court has asked the ECC to involve Four-gas in the process with the consent of the prime minister. The court has also asked relevant officials to submit a report on actions taken on the court orders on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Sharif-ud-din Pirzada, who is councel for the Four-gas company, said that the country has not suffered from any loss by signing the LNG contract.
