The High Court (HC) of the British Virgin Islands has ruled in favor of Pakistan in Reko Diq case and ordered to restore all the frozen assets of PIA.
The high court of the British Virgin Islands (BVI) has voided the earlier verdict in the Reko Diq case wherein PIA hotels in Paris and Manhattan were frozen as the country was liable to pay out a whopping US$6 billion to Tethyan Copper Company (TCC) and released PIA assets registered by BVS company.
