Ju­di­ciary de­liv­ered bold ver­dicts even in mar­tial law: CJ Azam

Pakistan Observer - - KASHMIR -

OUR COR­RE­SPON­DENT MIRPUR—Chief Jus­tice of AJK Mr Jus­tice Mo­ham­mad Azam Khan has un­der­lined the ur­gency and im­por­tance of strength­en­ing un­der­stand­ing be­tween the Bench and the Bar say­ing it fa­cil­i­tates cor­rect in­ter­pre­ta­tion of law to de­liver speedy jus­tice to the lit­i­gants. A strong Bar is the strength of the ju­di­ciary.

I have great pride in the ju­di­ciary of Azad Jammu and Kash­mir who de­liv­ered bold, dig­ni­fied and im­par­tial judge­ments in all phases of his­tory - democr­tic, mar­tial law and even in un­fa­vor­able con­di­tions, he ob­served ac­cord­ing to a me­dia re­port.

He ap­pre­ci­ated the role of the Lawyers Bar As­so­ci­a­tion for their sig­inif­i­cant role in the process of dis­pen­sa­tion of jus­tice to the ag­grieved par- ties. He paid trib­utes to the Mirpur Bar As­so­ci­a­tion for its role in restora­tion of ju­di­ciary move­ment, Kash­mir’s free­dom strug­gle. It pro­duced famed ju­rists, lawyers and politi­cians.

Chief Jus­tice M Azam Khan re­it­er­ated that for the suc­cess­ful run­ning of sys­tem of a coun­try the in­de­pe­dent roles of leg­is­la­ture, ju­di­ciary and ad­min­is­tra­tion are of ut­most im­por­tance.

He ob­served that the lit­i­gants have had to pass through the pas­sage of dif­fi­cul­ties un­less law and con­sti­tu­tion are fully im­ple­mented. When the poor peo­ple lose their rights, they re­sort to the ju­di­ciary and it is at this stage that the lawyers must come for­ward to help, guide the jus­tice-seek­ers. Ev­ery suf­ferer of rights want im­me­di­ate jus­tice, he added.
