Pension bill accords with Constitution

5 May 2011 08:13 am - 6     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The Supreme Court has informed Parliament that the proposed private sector pension bill and its clauses are in accordance with the Constitution, the speaker announced in the Parliament a short while ago.

The court ruling was delivered to the Speaker by the Supreme Court on Tuesday.

The Supreme Court examined the act regarding private sector pensions to verify its compatibility with the Constitution.

Several trade unions challenged the act for public sector pensions and foreign employees' pensions that were to be debated in parliament on April 27. However the government decided to postpone the debates on the acts due to protests.

    Maybe so but the point here is the motive behind this pension plan. Can the workers trust the govt. on its bona fides?

    Dear President, please do not play the fool with innocent middle class people's hard earned savings. They were happy with the EPF and ETF that they received. Don't take it away from them and pay it in installments just because your government wasted billions of public money and now is unable to pay the people's hard earned savings.

    Darrak, you are absolutely correct. This is Highway Robbery.
