PESHAWAR: Law Minister, NWFP, Arshad Abdullah said Saturday that Nizam-e-Adal Regulation has now become a law and the courts will function under Nizam-e-Adal Regulation 2009.
Talking exclusively to Geo News, Khalid Khan, the Law Minister said security situation has improved in Malakand and the courts, like other public departments, should resume their activities.
According to Arshad Abdullah, judges should resume their work in Swat like other divisions of Malakand. He said, “security has been provided to District, Session and Additional Judges in Malakand and it should not be a concern anymore.”
Regarding Darul-Qaza, the provisional minister noted, “the establishment of the High Court is suffering from delay due to the shortage of judges,” adding, “as soon as the shortage is overcome a bench for Darul-Qaza shall be sent to Malakand.”
