Lahore: Justice Sardar Tariq Masood of Lahore High Court has said that people of Pakistan have pinned high hopes with the courts and we all should strive hard for dispensation of justice and Law Officers should be committed to this sacred duty honesty with fear of Almighty Allah in mind.
Hon’ble Judge was addressing a concluding ceremony of Twelve-Week Pre-Service Training Course designed for Assistant District Attorneys at Punjab Judicial Academy. Provincial Secretary Law & Parliamentary Affairs and District & Sessions Judge Lahore, Mr. Nazir Ahmad Gajana also attended the ceremony.
Hon’ble judge said that it was a perception in the past that Law Officers were not serious in the discharge of their obligations and used to appear before courts without preparing the cases and sans proper uniform. It is hoped that after going through the exhaustive training at the PJA, young Attorneys will bring some change in this perception. To strengthen the institution of justice, it must be your duty to assist the courts as per constitution and law. Hon’ble Judge said that these cases are meant to reverberate in the higher courts in case of appeal and a minor slackness will lead to wastage of precious time and money. You should value time and always be punctual while appearing in courts and that too in proper uniform. Almighty Allah has honored the black coats throughout the world and this black coat is your identity. Hon’ble Judge said that intellectual dishonesty and corruption are accountable before Almighty Allah and provision of justice to the aggrieved people is impossible without true assistance by prosecution side. Therefore you should bring facts of the case before course of law diligently, honestly and painstakingly, so that provision of justice could be ensured.
Director General Punjab Judicial Academy, Mr. Justice (R) Tanvir Ahmad Khan said that no one can deny the importance of Law Officers in district judiciary and they should argue the government cases taking them personal.
