|People have full trust in judiciary: CJ|
17 July 2012
RAWALPINDI: Chief Justice of Pakistan, Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry, Monday night said that people reposed great trust in judiciary, thus it was imperative for the judges and lawyers that they stood up against all kinds of constitutional excesses to stonewall them, Geo News reported.
He said this after inaugurating the newly built Judicial Complex here in Rawalpindi.
Addressing the participants of the inauguration ceremony, he said that the Black Coat and the Black Camera have been struggling for the supremacy as well as independence of the judiciary for the last five years.
“Our job necessitates that we stop corruption in its all forms and we will not tolerate it whether it is inside or outside the judiciary”, Chief Justice vowed.
He said that judiciary’s suo moto intervention into a number of graft cases in different departments recovered billions of rupees.
Going forward, he urged the lawyers to volunteer their efforts for the supremacy of Constitution.
In his speech, Chief Justice of Pakistan defined the thriving nations as those, which believed in égalité, where the poor and the rich were treated in the same way without any distinction.
“For any army to win a war a nation 'full of honour' must be standing behind it”, Chief Justice said.
On Balochistan, the Chief Justice said the Constitution and the law of the land were yet far from implementation in the most underdeveloped but the most mineral-rich province of Pakistan.
“The law & order situation in Balochistan is a cause of grave concern and must be improved without delay”, the Chief Justice said wrapping up his speech.
