Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry has said it is mandatory to abide by all the rules and regulations of the Judicial policy in order to provide justice adding mid way should not be adopted for the sake of justice.
CJP said this while presiding over the meeting of National Judicial Policy Making Committee (NJPMC). Chief Justices of all the provincial high courts and Supreme Court (SC) registrar Dr Faqir Muhammad attended the meeting.
The committee deliberated over the matters related to implementation of National Judicial Policy (NJP) and the results achieved so far.
Expressing his satisfaction over implementation of NJP, CJP Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry said the set targets were being achieved in connection with NJP in line with policy despite heavy odds.

Work was continuing day and night in the courts so that provision of speedy justice to the people could be ensured, he added.
He announced that National Judicial Conference (NJC) will be held in Islamabad from April, 16 to 18 and the participation of all the stakeholders including lawyers would be ensured therein. Over 500 people would take part in the conference from across the country, he pointed out.
Judiciary or lawyers would not be allowed to pursue short cut and more measures would be taken for provision of justice to the common man, he announced. But it would be hard to achieve target without the cooperation of Bar, he observed.
