International Desk: The Imran Khan government has now paid $ 7 million (51 million Indian rupees) to the Irish jet company a week later, after fiercely insulting Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) aircraft in Malaysia. Pakistan's national carrier told the London High Court that it had paid US $ 7 million to an Irish jet company.
The PIA aircraft was seized in Malaysia following a dispute over the lease amount. The PIA told a London High Court judge on Friday that it had paid approximately US $ 7 million to Peregrine Aviation Charlie Ltd in the case of two aircraft leased by Dublin-based AirCap. The PIA lawyers on Friday requested the court to give the next date of hearing in the case.
What's the matter
Last week, after a local court order, Malaysian authorities seized PIA's Boeing-777 aircraft at the Kuala Lumpur airport for not paying the aircraft lease amount to AirCap. It is expected that the entire amount will be paid under the agreement before any order is passed against the PIA by the court. Counsel for the Dublin-based Aircap told the court that the plaintiff's position is that the amount has been paid today by the defendant (PIA). " The court was told that the PIA had not paid the amount since July and that it had to pay US $ 5,880 to the airlines every month. Failure to do so was filed.
The PIA stated in its plea that the aviation industry has been severely impacted by the Kovid-19 pandemic and hence the amount should be reduced. According to the sources, the leasing company was monitoring the activities of PIA and as soon as it came to know that flight number 895 is scheduled to land at the airport in Malaysia in local court under international civil aviation lease law An application was filed for confiscation of the aircraft. An airline spokesperson said that the Boeing-777 aircraft was seized after the London High Court issued the order.
