ISLAMABAD: The Overseas Pakistani Foundation (OPF) has planned to establish dedicated fast-track courts in all provinces of Pakistan to protect properties and provide quick redressal of property disputes of overseas Pakistanis, said the managing director of OPF, Dr. Amer Sheikh.
Dr. Sheikh informed the Senate Standing Committee on Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development that the foundation has also established housing societies, educational institutions, and complaint cells for the timely resolution of the problems of overseas Pakistanis.
The committee appreciated the initiative and directed the Employees Old Age Benefits Institution (EOBI) to provide a detailed report against all reservations leveled against it in the next two weeks.
The meeting was attended by several senators and senior officials of the ministry and its subordinate departments.
Sheikh believed that this development would help in streamlining problems confronted by overseas Pakistanis and their dependents, which is the primary function of the Ministry of Overseas Pakistanis.
Moreover, the establishment of fast-track courts for property disputes is a welcome step as it will provide quick redressal of property disputes faced by overseas Pakistanis, he claimed.
