ISLAMABAD - The panelists at the two-day National Conference on Implementation of National Judicial Policy-2009 praised the Policy and their speeches focused on finding the ways and means for its implementation in letter and spirit. However, the audience comprising mostly the lawyers who were given the opportunity to have their say at the end of each of the three sessions, pointed out that the goals set in the Policy were unrealistic and ensured speedy disposal of cases but not the justice. Advocate General Sindh Yousuf Leghari hit at the very authority of the National Judicial (Policy Making) Committee and said that only the government was authorized to formulate such policies while the courts were to implement the same. He also said that there was no mechanism in the Policy regarding addressing the complaints against the judges of superior, high and lower courts and that the Supreme Judicial Council was inactive. President District Bar Hafizabad said that the lower courts could not deliver as per the aspirations of the Policy due to lack of facilities, staff and the regular outage of electricity. How can a person deliver after not taking due sleep owing to absence of electricity and forced again to work in scorching heat on account of the same cause, he said. He further said that judges of the subordinate courts were under pressure to meet the targets of the Policy and were delivering speedy judgments, not the justice. One day the people would take to the streets and would say that they do not need so speedy justice, he said. Another senior lawyer said that the Chief Justice was iron man who neither felt thirst or hunger nor needed to sleep, and could work against all odds but said that other judges were not so hard-working and could not deliver in the prevailing circumstances. The Policy should be revisited else it would surely commit murder of the justice, he said. Ex-President Faisalabad Bar said that the judiciary should function at normal speed and should ensure timely justice instead of speedy one. However, the Chief Justice had earlier said that the Policy was subject to revision and adjustments and Justice Javed Iqbal, who chaired the first session on clearing the backlog, had said that the judiciary might not clear the total backlog, but it would surely bring down the number of pending cases remarkably.
