Punjab Government Devastates Entire System: LHC


LAHORE, July  09 (Online Int’l): Chief Justice (CJ) Lahore High Court (LHC) has remarked that the Punjab government has devastated the entire system.

He gave these remarks while presiding over the LHC bench during the course of hearing of petition on delegation of judicial powers to commissioners and deputy commissioners in the province Thursday.

The petitioner took the plea that separate powers have been devolved to the administration and judiciary under the constitution.  But Punjab government has given the powers of magistrate to commissioners and deputy commissioners through a notification. The notification by the Punjab government on giving powers of magistrate to commissioners and deputy commissioners is in derogation of article 2 (a) and article 9 of the constitution. He prayed the court to declare this notification of Punjab government on devolving powers of magistrate null and void.

During the hearing of the case the CJ LHC expressed his resentment over delegating judicial powers to commissioners and deputy commissioners by the Punjab government. The CJ remarked, “The Punjab government has set up a stage show in the courts. The government has ruined the entire system.  The Punjab government is much too fond of enjoying judicial powers. We will issue contempt of court notices to the authorities who have issued and approved the notification.”

Chief Minister of Punjab (CM) Sardar Usman Buzdar will be sent a notice if the notification gets annulled in the case’s final decision, the LHC CJ said. The court while suspending the notification of the Punjab government adjourned the hearing of the case.
