DELEGATION OF SUPREME COURT BAR ASSOCIATION CALLS ON HCJP

Dated: 6-November-2013

The newly elected and the outgoing Cabinets of the Supreme Court Bar Association headed by their respective Presidents, Mr. Kamran Murtaza and Mr. Israr-ul-Haq Mian and comprising other office bearers called on the Hon’ble Chief Justice of Pakistan Mr. Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry today i.e. on 06.11.2013 in the Supreme Court of Pakistan, Islamabad.

Addressing the joint gathering of incoming and outgoing cabinets of Supreme Court Bar Association, the Hon’ble Chief Justice said that it is a matter of great pleasure and privilege for him to receive the newly elected cabinet members and added that there is a close nexus between the Bench and the Bar. Both are integral parts of the system of administration of justice. It is the duty of the Bench to dispense justice in accordance with law and the Constitution without fear or favour while it is the duty of the Bar to assist the Bench in dispensation of justice to public at large. Therefore, it is incumbent upon both of them to address the expectations and legal needs of people by deciding their cases expeditiously. For the cause of administration of justice, the role of Bar is very crucial, inasmuch as without the assistance and cooperation of Bar, the goal of administration of justice cannot be achieved. A strong Bar is sine qua non for a strong and an independent judiciary. The people expect that in our country independent judiciary must work and dispense justice in accordance with law and the Constitution.

There was a working session between the Bench and the Bar to discuss the issues and challenges confronting the system of administration of justice, and in particular, the matters relating to fixation of cases in the Supreme Court with a view to remove hiccups in the process of free and fair dispensation of justice to the litigant public. The purpose was to expedite the judicial process so that cases/disputes are quickly decided, grievances redressed and relief granted to the deserving party. The members of the Supreme Court Bar Association thanked the Hon’ble Chief Justice of Pakistan for providing an opportunity to discuss these matters in a face to face manner.

At the end, shields were distributed by the Hon’ble Chief Justice of Pakistan on behalf of Supreme Court Bar Association to the outgoing President and the Cabinet Members for the services rendered by them for the uplift and welfare of the legal fraternity.
