ISLAMABAD: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) wrote a letter to the Foreign Office, seeking help for the removal of encroachments on state land by various embassies, confirmed CDA spokesperson Syed Safdar Ali.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) was informed of 11 cases of encroachments with images.
“Diplomatic missions are a delicate issue, however, with collaboration of Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) the embassies have been sensitised and within a fortnight a meeting will be held under the auspices of MOFA where violations shall be displayed before the missions so they voluntarily remove them failing which the same will be removed under law,” read a report submitted to the Supreme Court by the CDA stating about its anti-encroachment operations in the city.
Violating the capital’s master plan, some embassies, or residences of ambassadors in F-6, F-7, and F-8, had established guard posts, placed security barriers, and generators etc., outside their plot lines.
The CDA has taken this action to prevent the problems created for the citizens.
