Secy asked to ensure salaries to teachers

Declaring the government’s proposed decision of winding up the Basic Education Community Schools (BECS) project unlawful and in violation of various constitutional provisions, the Supreme Court on Monday again directed the finance secretary to ensure payment of salaries to teachers and other staff of the BECS within a week and submit compliance report.
In its detailed verdict, a three-member Supreme Court bench comprising Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, Justice Khilji Arif Hussain and Justice Tariq Parvez held that the government’s proposed action of closing down the project was illegal and in violation of Article 25-A of the constitution. The court also held the government’s proposed act of winding up the National Commission for Human Development (NCHD) unconstitutional and of no legal effect and directed the commission to continue to perform the duty of providing basic human rights to the citizens.
