LAHORE: Chief Justice Justice Asif Saeed Khosa on Saturday said summoning senior officials to courts is not good, we must ensure that courts are providing justice to the public.
Addressing a ceremony, he said if institutions are working efficiently then courts need not intervene them. He said respect must be given to those who appear in the courts.
“Whenever a matter captures the publics’ attention, people expect a suo moto notice,” he said. “If the government institution is active beforehand then the court does not need to take notice on it,” he added.
Justice Khosa said the issues may become complex if the Supreme Court starts intervening from day one. He said a matter comes to SC after investigation and trial. “One should maintain the dignity of a police official or any other person who appears before the court,” he said.
CJP said retired police officers played an important role in the reforms committee. He said model courts have brought revolution in the judicial history of Pakistan.
Earlier, CJP chaired the session of Police Reforms Committee (PRC) which was constituted in January to table recommendations for improvements in the policing system of the country – to examine progress achieved in reforms in the police department.
The session was attended by inspector generals of four provinces, Gilgit Baltistan and Islamabad.
CJP Khosa ordered to ensure timely registration of cases and said that the quality of investigation should be improved. He also directed officers to ensure the implementation of policy reforms on a priority basis.
The top judge also ordered immediate resolutions of complaints received by the Police Complaint Cell.
