The Balochistan High Court (BHC) on Tuesday suspended the federal government’s order to deport Turkish staffers of the Pak-Turk schools and their family members to Turkey.
The divisional bench of the BHC, comprising Chief Justice Muhammad Noor Maskanzai and Justice Naeem Akhtar Afghan, issued notices to officials of the federal interior ministry and directed them to appear before the court in the next hearing of the case.
Nadir Chalgari, the counsel for Turkish staffers, pleaded before the court that deporting teachers was a clear violation of basic human rights.
More than 1,400 students are studying in the three Pak-Turk school campuses. Around 20 Turkish teachers have been teaching in these three campuses.
The case has been adjourned till the last week of December of this year.
Earlier, the Peshawar High Court as well as the Sindh High Court also suspended the order of the federal government to deport Turkish staffers and their family members.
