Islamabad (Staff Report): Chief Justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar said on Monday that the judiciary did not interfere with the functioning of any institution.
“There is a lot to be done for the justice system… people want supremacy of the law, not corruption and bribery culture,” the CJP said while addressing a ceremony.
CJP Nisar said that the police system was not reformed and the committee formed to bring reforms based on recommendations.
The CJP is set to retire on Jan 17 and the federal government had announced the appointment of Supreme Court Justice Asif Saeed Khosa as the Chief Justice of Pakistan, replacing incumbent Justice Mian Saqib Nisar, from January 18.
Earlier, the CJP said that he wants to open a legal clinic to dispense free legal services to those who are unable to afford it.
“You see, Pakistan wasn’t made only for the affluent, the poor have as much a right to basic facilities as anyone,” he said.
