The Chief Justice of Pakistan, Qazi Faez Isa, has stated that the Supreme Court is facing a large number of pending cases and will no longer allow the practice of seeking adjournments for hearings. During a recent case related to a land dispute, a lawyer requested a later date for the hearing, but the Chief Justice reprimanded him and said that seeking adjournments will no longer be acceptable. He suggested that notices should be issued in one hearing and arguments heard in the next. The Supreme Court rejected the lawyer’s plea for a later date, emphasizing the importance of having all the necessary paperwork ready when a case comes to the court. The Chief Justice recently established a committee of judges on case management to address the backlog of 57,000 cases and to ensure speedy administration of justice. Additionally, weekly updates on the number of cases filed and disposed of by the court will now be regularly issued to ensure transparency.
