CHITRAL: Among the many ills that ail our country, is the absence of an efficient and fair judicial system. Instances of legal cases being dragged on for generations are not rare in Pakistan. It appears that no government since independence has paid heed towards the improvement of our judicial system. Jokes, puns and sarcasm abound regarding the weakness of the justice system in Pakistan.
Whereas there may be many suggestions regarding improvement of the judicial system, one suggestion if implemented would not only turn around the deliverance of justice in Pakistan but would also reduce the load on the courts which are full of ‘no go’ cases being filed by every Tom Dick and Harry, and many on the instigation and prodding of lawyers, who have nothing to loose trying their shenaniganism, in the current system.
As per the new suggestion any lawyer who files a frivolous case on behalf of a party and looses the case, the lawyer along with the case filer party should be punished severely. If this law is implemented there would be 80 percent less cases in the courts and those who file a petition need to be pretty sure and confident about what they are doing. At present there is a heavy load of non-serious cases in the courts. The example of the illiterate Sikh judge is a gleaming road for our Judges. .. CN report, 24 July 2020
