Islamabad (Staff Report): Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar has said that judges should take decisions objectively based on facts.
“You have to serve the nation with full honesty. You have to work with passion. You have to take decisions objectively based on facts,” Nisar said while presiding over a meeting of judges belonging to Special Tribunals and administrative courts at the National Judicial Policy-making Tribunal on Saturday.
The CJP said the courts are an important pillar of any state including Pakistan. “If this pillar does not perform, then the state will become imbalanced,” he said and added, “Fundamental rights of the people cannot and should not be compromised, it is our duty as judges and lawyers to ensure that justice is being delivered.”
Justice Nisar said that a judge of the high court draws a monthly salary of Rs. 0.9 million and Rs. 40,000 daily while the salary of a supreme court judge is even higher. He advised the judges to work enough to prove their earning.
He also urged lawyers present there to take an oath and promise that when they exit this meeting, their prime agenda will be to deliver justice under the command of the law and obey it unconditionally.
