ISLAMABAD - Elimination of corruption is must to save the country, said Registrar Peshawar High Court Syed Mussaddiq Hussain Gillani in the certificate awarding ceremony on the conclusion of week-long course at Federal Judicial Academy (FJA), Islamabad, on Saturday. Talking on topic, How to be an effective Nazir for Nazirs/Accountants from all over Pakistan including Azad Jammu and Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan, he said that dealing with the menace of corruption was not an easy task, however, the elimination of cancer of corruption which was engulfing our country, was the need of the hour to save our institutions, the country and countrymen. Even if we have to give stupendous sacrifices but we must have to proceed with concrete steps in dealing with the corruption, he maintained. Shedding light on the steps which the Honble Peshawar High Court, Peshawar, has taken so far to eliminate the corruption from the subordinate judiciary he noted that a vigorous campaign had been launched to weed out corruption from the Court Officers and court supporting staff. We have been successful in this struggle to a certain extent but we are strongly feeling unless you people (court personnel including Nazirs/ Accountants) are not cooperating, we cant achieve the desired results, he opined. He emphatically asked the Nazirs/Accountants to supervise the compliance of subordinates and provide them moral and technical assistance and training and report immediately to the Judge Incharge if any of the court personnel was involved in corruption and malpractices. Together we can eliminate the cancer of corruption and without collective and conscious efforts it was impossible to eradicate corruption he said. He lauded the content of the course for the Nazirs and opined that the Academy management has included very important topics both professional and social in the designed course and also about Morality, Ethics but still much may be included about Court Ethics and Judicial Moralism for court personnel in the upcoming courses and orientations. Earlier, Mr. Parvaiz Ali Chawla, DG of the Academy presented his welcome address and an overview of the course. He advised the Nazirs/ Accountants of the courts to play their effective and efficient role so that easy and expeditious justice may not remain elusive for the poor litigant public. Muhammad Riaz, Nazir/ Accountant, Islamabad Court, presented views on behalf of the course participants and requested the management for more such courses for the capacity of the court supporting staff.
