LAHORE

Fed­eral Courts Lawyers Forum sec­re­tary gen­eral Za­hoor Taga has an­nounced hold protest demon­stra­tion if the fed­eral gov­ern­ment does not ap­point judges at the bank­ing and other courts at the build­ing.

Taga said we will hold protest tak­ing up the roads to im­press upon the gov­ern­ment to pro­vide judges at the fed­eral Courts at the ear­li­est. Un­avail­abil­ity of the judges at the Fed­eral Courts is a rou­tine mat­ter. The con­cerned au­thor­i­ties have so many times been in­formed about the im­por­tant is­sue of the non avail­abil­ity of judges.

Ear­lier the gov­ern­ment was ap­point­ing re­tired judges who used to spend long time here. But since the gov­ern­ment has been ap­point­ing in ser­vice judges, the is­sue has ag­gra­vated, Taga said.

Three Bank­ing Courts at the Fed­eral Courts have been work­ing with­out judges and the gov­ern­ment has trans­ferred the only Judge Am­jad Pervaiz from the Fed­eral Court and the four bank­ing courts are work­ing with­out any judge.

Out of four bank­ing courts at the Fed­eral Courts three have been work­ing with­out judge for the one month. Sources dis­closed that ab­sence of judges had pre­cluded im­ple­men­ta­tion on the case in which de­crees has been is­sued.

Both com­plainants and lawyers have been fac­ing troubles in the ab­sence of judges. He said that Fed­eral Courts Lawyers Forum was hold­ing an ur­gent meet­ing of the lawyers to evolve a com­pre­hen­sive strat­egy as to how the pres­ence of judges could be made pos­si­ble in this re­spect.

He said that Chief Jus­tice Lahore High Court Umar Atta Ban­dial is vis­it­ing Fed­eral Courts to­day and the fed­eral Courts Lawyers Forum would take up the is­sue of un­avail­abil­ity of judges at the bank­ing and other courts with the CJ.

Taga said that un­avail­abil­ity of Judges at the bank­ing courts have posed se­ri­ous prob­lems to both com­plainants and the lawyers due to which num­ber cases are in­creas­ing on daily ba­sis.

He urged the gov­ern­ment to make per­ma­nent ar­range­ment for the avail­abil­ity of judges at the fed­eral courts or they will take their own de­ci­sion.
