Court adjourns lawsuit that challenges January petrol price hike
Manama: A legal challenge seeking to overturn last month's surprise petrol price increase has been adjourned until Sunday.
Six lawyers are challenging the decision in the High Administrative Court, which adjourned the case today for submission of final arguments.
The January 8 price hike saw the price of premium Mumtaz (95 octane) fuel rise 25 per cent, from 160 fils to 200 fils per litre, and cheaper Jayyid (91 octane) fuel increase to 140 fils per litre, a 12pc rise from the previous 125 fils.
