Judicial system deteriorated instead of improving, laments outgoing CJ

ISLAMABAD: The outgoing Chief Justice (CJ) of Pakistan Jawwad S Khawaja on Wednesday expressed sorrow that the judicial system of the country has deteriorated instead of improving, ARY News reported.

According to details, a full court reference was held on Wednesday in honor of the outgoing CJ.

In his address, Justice Jawwad S Khawaja lamented non-availability of swift and inexpensive justice for the people, adding that verdict in a case at times takes as long as 25 years in reaching the apex court from lower judiciary.

Justice Khawaja said we should admit that we failed in swiftly serving justice.

The participants of the ceremony praised Khawaja for his services for the judiciary.
