Islamabad - Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb has said that conduct of a judge must reaffirm the people’s faith in the integrity of the judiciary.

The newly appointed judge of Islamabad High Court was presiding over the certificate awarding ceremony as chief guest at the conclusion of one-week course on “Criminal Trial and Appreciation of Evidence” for civil judges–cum-magistrates here at the Federal Judicial Academy yesterday.

Justice Hassan said, “A judge both in his private and professional life should behave in a manner as to preserve the dignity of the office. The judges are custodians of the rule of law and they should always behave in such a manner as people in and around idolise them.”
