The Supreme Court has sought a reply from the government in the matter of the expansion of the US embassy and construction of 7-storey hotel in embassy building. SC two-member bench headed by Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan said that the “hotel cannot be constructed in the embassy building. Those who have come here on diplomatic mission should respect national and international laws. The government should tell if the construction of hotel in embassy is legal or illegal”. Deputy Attorney General (DAG) Sohail Ahmad told the court that the interior ministry has no objection over the expansion of the US embassy building. The court while seeking reply from federal government within a month adjourned the case.
