Vice President of the District Bar Association Mardan Advocate Ashraf Ali has prayed to the Peshawar High Court to review its decision on banning the entry fee of Malam Jabba resort that has led to its closure.
A Mingora bench of the high court had barred the resort’s management from collection of entry fee to the tourist spot on a petition from some lawyers in the area.
The skiing resort was closed after the verdict as its management said that the business was not viable for it without collection of the entry fee.
The vice president has also demanded of the government to do its best to restore tourism activities in the area that is providing jobs to thousands of locals besides helping the local businesses to flourish.
He said that certain principles should be followed to promote tourism in the region and bring investment, adding that the courts should refrain from judicial overreach as this would damage their reputation.
