Strikes on petty issues hinder delivery of justice: LHC CJ

Wednesday, 4th January 2018

"Lahore High Court (LHC) Chief Justice Syed Mansoor Ali Shah on Sunday urged the bench and bar to observe their limits, saying that calling of strikes by lawyers on petty issues was hindering provision of justice in the province.

Speaking at a seminar, titled “Future of District Judiciary” here at a local hotel, he declared lawyers’ strikes and lack of judges as the main hurdles in dispensation of speedy justice at district level.

The CJ dispelled the impression that the system had choked, saying that judges were working very hard. He said the Punjab court system suffered a lot during the outgoing year because of 3,840 strikes, called by lawyers in just 10 months.

The LHC CJ said that as a result of the strikes, around 240,000 cases were not heard in the Punjab. These cases could have been decided on time had the strikes not been observed, he added."
