LAHORE: Lahore High Court Chief Justice Syed Mansoor Ali Shah said yesterday that incompetent judges could not deliver justice.

The Chief Justice expressed these views while addressing a concluding ceremony of a special training programme at Punjab Judicial Academy.

The CJ said that there should be no delay in dispensation of justice. He stated that he would try his best to change negative perception of the citizens about provincial judiciary. He said the Punjab Judiciary Act would be introduced. The judicial officers were not civil servants and soon their cadre would be changed with judicial officers, he maintained.

 “Dispensation of Justice is a holy profession and black sheep will not be tolerated in it,” the CJ said.  He also distributed certificates among the judicial officers.  Justice Mahmood Maqbool Bajwa, Justice Shujaat Ali Khan, Registrar Syed Khurshid Anwar Rizvi, MIT Tahir Sabir and Director General of the academy Uzma Akhtar Chughtai also graced the occasion.–Staff Reporter
