CJ Satisfied with Judiciary Performance in First Year | UssPost.com:KARACHI: Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Iftikhar Muhammed Chaudhry said the performance of the judiciary remained satisfactory during the first year after its restoration; however, the real success would be possible with the poor and common man gaining easy access to the justice.
Addressing a meeting of National Judicial Policy Making Committee on completion of one year after its restoration, he said the judiciary delivered crucial verdicts in its first year; national judicial policy was framed, adding the PCO judges were sacked and the NRO was declared unconstitutional.
He said the Parliament has been given chance to legislate the dictator’s law into Act, adding despite all this, the destination is still far away.
The CJ Chaudhry said this target could only be achieved when the common and poor people receive justice as easily as the elite do.
Underscoring the need for myriad practical steps and struggle, the Chief Justice said it is not reasonable to be complacent on this reported performance.
The judiciary needs to iron out its deficiencies, he added.
The CJ said it is needed to scrutinize a case of public benefit before taking immediate action on it, as the complainant may misstate as well.
The meeting to continue till 5pm.
