QUAIDABAD - The Bar and Bench are the two integral parts of the justice dispensation system and only their effective role can ensure timely justice.

The bar is like an academy where lawyers learn how to unfurl the mysteries and complications of disputes and where they get groomed to be enabled to rise to the coveted seats of judges.

These views were expressed by Lahore High Court Chief Justice Umar Atta Bindyal while talking to the members of a delegation of the Quaidabad Tehsil Bar Association who called on him here the other day.

The 11-member delegation was led by QTBA President Malik Khalid Mehmood Uttra while it was comprised of Advocate Akram Khan Niazi, Malik Sarfraz Uttra, M Nawaz Bhatti, M Ramzan Awan, Rana Mohammad Azam, Malik Zahoor and Ameer Kleira. The delegation apprised the LHC CJ of different problems the bar had been confronted with. They demanded the establishment of Judicial Complex and construction of judicial lock-up at Quaidabad. They appealed to Justice Bindyal to order the additional district and sessions judge to visit the QTBA thrice a week to ensure liaison between the bar and bench.

On the occasion, the LHC chief justice ordered the district and sessions judge to furnish a report about the judicial complex at Quaidabad in three days.

Meanwhile, the Quaidabad Tehsil Bar Association observed a strike to express solidarity with the Supreme Court of Pakistan. The strike was observed on the call given by the Punjab Bar Council. It is to be noted that the Noorpur Thal Tehsil Bar Association and Jauharabad Bar Association had already observed the strike on June 27.
