Islamabad: The incoming 26th Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Asif Saeed Khosa said the Supreme Court will take suo moto notices as the last option.
While speaking in a full courtroom that was organized in the honour of the outgoing Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar, Justice Khosa said the top court will only take suo moto action when no other option is left.
“The authority will only be used sparingly and for significant national matters,” he said. “Court would set up parameters for suo motu powers.”
The incoming Chief Justice of Pakistan promised that justice will be delivered at a reasonably good pace and there will be no interference by the military in civil courts.
“Military court trials are considered wrong worldwide. There was a perception that military courts held swifter trials,” he said.
Justice Khosa urged that all the institutions must work together and collaborate to bring progress and prosperity. “There was a need for conversations pertaining to whether any institution was interfering in another institution’s work.”
