Pakistan to introduce e-courts for justice
During the meeting, the Chief Justice decided that e-court system will be installed on principal seats and other registries of the Supreme Court.
It was revealed in the meeting that 6,407 cases were filed in the Supreme Court between January 1, 2018 and December 31, 2018.
Currently, 40,535 cases were pending in the Supreme Court only.
Speaking to Gulf News, a Dubai-based Pakistani lawyer Raees Qureshi welcomed the decision of setting up, e-court system. “I think it is a great decision but cannot be implemented in all the cases,” he said.
“The e-court system could be used in some cases where transporting criminals or witnesses face difficulties or logistic issues. However, he said that e-courts would certainly be beneficial to dispose of minor cases.”
