The Chief Justice of Pakistan, Qazi Faez Isa, started his term as the country’s top judge by presiding over a live broadcast of a full court hearing. This is the first time in Pakistan’s judicial history that such a broadcast has taken place. The hearing was about a set of petitions challenging the Supreme Court (Practice and Procedure) Act 2023, which was passed earlier this year to regulate the powers of the Chief Justice. Many legal, journalist, and political figures have welcomed this live broadcast as a step towards transparency and accessibility in the justice system. They believe that technology can be used to make courts and justice more accessible to the public. Lawyer Jibran Nasir emphasized the importance of transparency and accountability in the judiciary. However, some critics have expressed reservations about the live broadcast, seeing it as a step in the wrong direction or as an exposure of mediocrity in the legal profession. Overall, there is a consensus that the digitization of court proceedings can be a positive development for the justice system in Pakistan.
