On Thursday, while hearing a case pertaining to ‘fake degrees’ of pilots, the CJP heading a three member bench expressed anger on the reports of pilots carrying unverified degrees.

When a Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) director informed the court that Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi also owns Air Blue, the chief justice remarked that they can call him in his private capacity and not as the prime minister.

The court observed that the complete data from all airlines has still not been submitted to the court, adding that the CEOs should explain this, at the next hearing.
