ISLAMABAD - Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry on Saturday declared that merit in the appointment of judges was a supreme consideration coupled with proper training of all stakeholders including the prosecutors, lawyers, court personnel and police officers, and this could bring visible change. "We can achieve the long avowed goal of speedy and inexpensive justice in the country through this," he said. The Chief Justice expressed these views in the 34th meeting of the Board of Governors of the Federal Judicial Academy (FJA) held here on Saturday. The meeting discussed the salary structure and perks for the employees of the FJA in detail. The meeting was told that the requisite work has been completed and report sent to the Establishment Division for evaluation. However after necessary legal and administrative work and exercise, the perks and privileges of the employees of the FJA and those of the Law and Justice Commission of Pakistan should be brought at par with the Supreme Court of Pakistan. It was also resolved that existing disparity among the provincial and district judiciaries would be removed. The CJP said the government should take appropriate steps in this regard so that the district judiciaries of Sindh, Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa should be given those perks and privileges which are being enjoyed by the Punjab district judiciary. He said since the Academy was not having its rules, hence, "we should have proper rules for the Academy". "The Service Rules are essential to retain the most qualified and suitable people in the Academy," he observed. Speaking about the training being imparted to judges and judicial officers here at the Academy, Iftikhar said, "We are determined to give best of the best training to our judges both in conventional subjects and in the emerging trends in the world of judiciary", adding that this training could bring the best results, "our judiciary can give the best results when other stakeholders in the administration of justice, particularly the investigation officers, are equally, efficiently and effectively trained".
