CJP appreciates lower judiciary

Justice Iftikhar addresses SHC judges
KARACHI: Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP), Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry has expressed his satisfaction over the performance of the judges of Sindh High Court and district judiciary.
“During the last one year the judges of High Court and district judiciary have taken responsibility to discharge their duty to the best of their ability,” he said while addressing all the judicial officers posted in all the five districts and judicial officers posted in Special Courts of Karachi at the Sindh High Court (SHC) on Thursday.
The Chief Justice observed that coming to the court was not the only duty of the judges but more important is to provide justice to the needy. “It is satisfactory to note that people are now overwhelmingly reposing trust on the institution and faith is increasing day by day,” he noted. The increase in disposal of cases shows the performance of the courts, however, there was always room for improvement, he added.
The CJP said that judiciary was most important pillar of the country.
He said there were complaints, but as compared to the past, the number of complaints was on the decline. “You being part of district judges should also keep an eye on your subordinate staff,” he added.

Referring to the financial constraints and issue of salaries, he said any comment on the issue could not be made as it is subjudice because the issue was pending in the court of law.
However, he observed that the provincial government should also realise its responsibility in this regard as the judicial officers and para-legal staff were facing financial problems. The Chief Justice of SHC, Justice Sarmad Jalal Osmany and judges of Supreme Court and High Court were also present.-Agencies
