CJP Asif Saeed Khosa calls for a system for monitoring all courts
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Asif Saeed Khosa has stressed the need for a system to monitor all courts.
Addressing a ceremony on Saturday, he said that it was responsibility of the state to ensure attendance of the accused in courts.
He said that the judges are doing more work than judges across the country. “We cannot ask judges to do more. Unfortunately, the Justice Department is not in the priorities of the parliament. Recommendations and amendments have not been presented in the parliament for improving the Judicial Policy,” he said.
The CJP said that the achievement of justice will be easy by fixing the time of courts. “The police should present the challan of the case immediately after conducting investigations,” he said.
He said that the steps are being taken to end the delay in cases. “There is need to remove hurdles in the appearance of prisoners in courts,” he said.
The CJP said that the inheritance matters should be resolved in the NADRA office instead of courts. “It is also responsibility of the state to formulate the laws and implement them,” he remarked.
He said that the opinion of the Attorney General is also sought to remove the confusion in the law.
A lot of work being done on terrorism laws: Khosa
Earlier, Chief Justice of Pakistan Asif Saeed Khosa said that a lot of work is being done on the laws pertaining to terrorism and conditions will improve soon.
Addressing a certificate distribution ceremony at a law college on Saturday, he said that no one can point finger at lawyers if they improve their conduct. “Judges and lawyers are not being respected today as they were respected in the past.”
The CJP said that today each political, social and economic issue of the country is resolved through courts.
“Lawyers should have complete awareness about the law and its background. To achieve this objective, lawyers should be well-versed with literature, mathematics and history,” he observed.
Justice Umar Atta Bandial urged the lawyers to pay special attention to their character-building.
