Court directs Pakistan CAA to release report on fatal Airblue accident
22 April 2011

Pakistani newspaper “The Express Tribune” reported that the Peshawar High Court (PHC) had directed the Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to submit the inquiry report of the Airblue plane crash in Islamabad that killed all 152 people on board in July 2010.

The  Airblue Crash Affectees Organisation (ACAO) had filed a written petition asking for the Airblue fleet to be grounded in public interest till the findings of the inquiry report were made public.

The Chief Justice observed that before the court can pass any order for interim relief, responsibility has to be fixed in the inquiry, since the grounding of the airline would have serious consequences. The bench directed the CAA to submit the inquiry report if it has been finalised by the federal government.
