LAHORE Lahore High Court Chief Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed on Saturday said that they (judiciary) needed to prepare a judicial system according the needs of the people of Pakistan and not according to the wishes of the government.The CJ was addressing a reception ceremony arranged in his honour by the Punjab Bar Council at its complex. Justice Farrukh Irfan Khan, Aijaz-ul-Ahsan and Justice Manzoor Malik were also present. CJ Sheikh Azmat Saeed further said that people never wanted a judiciary which remained busy in seeking time for meetings with the executives of the government. Time has changed, and now we have to prepare a system according to the needs of the people (the litigants). They (litigants) are the genuine stakeholders of the judicial system. Justice Sheikh invited the legal fraternity from across the Punjab to step forward and join hands with him in order to eradicate problems in courts from the district to High Court level. Bar and bench must work together to resolve problems in the judiciary because nothing can be changed without the lawyers efforts and suggestions. I cant resolve these problems alone. The lawyers are an important part of the judicial system and they can play an effective role in developing a new judicial system so that the grievances of plaintiffs could be addressed, said the chief justice, adding that It is the right of the plaintiffs that they should be heard completely.Praising the historical lawyers movement, Chief Justice Azmat Saeed said they had to work more now. We have to find out a long-term policy to resolve the troubles of the litigants. We should not try to dispose of the cases but to decide them on merit, the CJ stressed. Speaking about the problems of the lawyers at district bars, the Chief Justice said, You keep on pointing out the difficulties and I will keep solving them. He said initiatives had been taken to resolve the issues of all district courts in the province. Office bearers from different district bars association including Lahore Bar Association, Punjab Bar Council and Pakistan Bar Council attended the ceremony and conveyed their grievances and problems to the Chief Justice. Earlier, addressing the ceremony, LBA President Shahzad Hassan Sheikh demanded that competent and senior lawyers should be elevated as judges at the LHC otherwise the lawyers will react strongly. He lamented that lawyers from the provincial capital had been ignored in the past for elevation as judges. Hassan also criticized the Judicial Policy, saying that Justice should be done on merit, not according to any policy. He asked the Chief Justice to issue strict orders to stop appointing lower-cadre employees of the courts for recording of evidences in the cases. Member Pakistan Bar Council Azam Nazir Tarar said judicial officers should provide proper relief to complainants at first.
