Islamabad: Mr. Tariq Sayeed, Vice President CACCI and former President, SAARC CCI and FPCCI expressed his concerns on the shortage of number of Judges performing their duties in Sindh High Court due to which the people are suffering unnecessary delays on the judgments of their cases.
He said that presently only 12 Judges are performing their duties in the Sindh High Court against a total strength of 42 Judges due to which backlog of cases is gradually increasing and if the problem is not tackled by employing modern technique i.e. case flow management and by inducting new Judges the backlog would be a stigma for the institution. He said that there are twelve Judges in Sindh High Court viz.: seven in Karachi; two in Hyderabad; two in Sukkur and one in Larkana and are heavily over burdened due to non-appointment of Judges.
Mr. Tariq Sayeed appealed to the Honourable President of Pakistan to appoint new Judges in the Sindh High Court for expeditious dispensation of justice to the affected people. He said that delay in case settling undermines the very purpose of setting up the courts itself because delaying justice amounts to denial of justice.
