Islamabad, December 06, 2012 (PPI-OT): The newly elected Cabinet of Supreme Court Bar Association headed by its President, Mr. Israr-ul-Haq Mian and comprising other office bearers called on the Hon’ble Chief Justice of Pakistan Mr. Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry today i.e. on 06-12-2012 in the Supreme Court of Pakistan, Islamabad.
Welcoming the newly elected cabinet the Hon’ble Chief Justice of Pakistan said, “it is a matter of great pleasure and privilege for him to receive the newly elected cabinet members and added that there is close nexus between Bench and Bar. Both are the integral part of the same system.
It is a duty of Bench to dispense justice in accordance with law and constitution without fear and favour while it is the duty of the Bar to assist the Bench in dispensation of justice to public at large. Therefore, it is incumbent upon both of us to address their expectations and legal needs of people by deciding their cases expeditiously.
For the cause of administration of justice, the role of Bar is very crucial, without the cooperation of Bar the goal of administration of justice can not be fulfilled. Strong Bar is sine qua non for strong and independent judiciary. We desire that in our country independent judiciary must work and dispense justice in accordance with law and constitution.
The meeting was a working session between the Bench and the Bar to discuss the issues faced by the administration of justice, in particular the procedure followed in the Supreme Court of Pakistan with a view to remove hiccups in the process of free and fair dispensation of justice to the litigant public.
The purpose was to expedite the judicial process so that cases/disputes are quickly decided, grievances redressed and relief granted to the deserving party. The Members of the Supreme Court Bar Association thanked the Hon’ble Chief Justice of Pakistan for providing this opportunity to discuss these matters in a face to face manner.
The Hon’ble Chief Justice welcomed the Members of the Supreme Court Bar and reassured them that both the Bar and the Bench are geared towards one and only one goal and that is to provide easy, quick and substantial justice to the people of Pakistan. Hon’ble Chief Justice reiterated the fact that, all out efforts are being made to dispose of cases in an appropriate manner to the satisfaction of the litigant parties.
