Global Center for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), the World Bank-financed worldwide mediation organization, has given a stay request on the requirement of the $6 billion punishment on Pakistan in the Reko Diq mining lease case.
Lawyer General of Pakistan, Khalid Jawed Khan, has named the ICSID’s choice as an enormous accomplishment for Pakistan and its legitimate group.
A year ago in July, the ICSID had forced a $6 billion punishment on Pakistan following the Supreme Court’s choice in 2013 which renounced the mining lease of Tethyan Copper Company (TCC), a consortium of the Chilean Antofagasta PLC and Canadian Barrick Gold Corporation, for the Reko Diq venture.
In November 2019, Pakistan had stopped an appeal in the ICSID looking for a stay request on the authorization of the $6 billion fine alongside a supplication for the revocation of the punishment.

Pakistan’s allure for suppress the $6 billion punishment is as yet being heard in the ICSID and a ultimate conclusion is normal in May 2021.
Reko Diq, a modest community in Chagai, Balochistan, has the greatest gold and copper stores in Pakistan. Once completely created, 250,000 ounces of gold and 200,000 tons of copper can be extricated from the mines every year for the following 50 years.
