LAHORE: Rejecting the National Judicial Policy, Punjab Bar Council Vice Chairman Mumtaz Mustafa, Chairman Executive Committee Rana Muhammad Akram and other members of Executive Committee said that the policy was not delivering justice to people and it was only accelerating the process for disposing of cases.
Addressing a joint press conference, Mustafa, Akram and other senior members of the bar council said that hastening the disposing of judges was equal to the burial of justice.
The judiciary should give rulings on merit without making any haste, they said.
They said not even five percent judges are honest in lower courts, whereas the remarks of Lahore High Court Chief Justice suggest as if judges of Khilafat-e-Rashida have been appointed.
Qazi Anwar, the president of Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA), is not the representative of lawyers, they remarked.
