Islamabad: “After restoration of the independent judiciary the responsibility of Bench and Bar has increased and now the both will have to work hard to ensure speedy justice to litigants at their door-steps” said the Honourable Mr. Justice Mian Shakirullah Jan, senior most Judge of Supreme Court of Pakistan while addressing the 18th Roll signing ceremony of newly enrolled advocates of Supreme Court of Pakistan.

Addressing the newly enrolled Advocates of Supreme Court, his lordship said, “it is matter of great honour for them because they have achieved their enrolment in the Supreme Court and they will gain further experience in this apex Court of the country which will ultimately enhance their responsibilities and they will feel proud while appearing in the apex Court of the country and their enrolment is entailment of their professional commitment, hardworking, sense of duty and dedication and now they will be assisting the apex Court in interpretation of the Constitution”.

Encouraging the newly enrolled advocates, his lordship said, “I am quite confident that you would be putting all your efforts to assist the bench in dispensation of justice to facilitate the litigants and civil society and you would be working for supremacy of Constitution, Rule of law and upholding the independence of judiciary”.

Further, his lordship added that due to the National Judicial Policy, a good number of cases had been disposed of and relief had been provided to the litigants and the policy not only enhanced the responsibility of Bench but also Bar.
