Pakistani Judges barred from using social media by LHC

LAHORE – The Lahore High Court (LHC) has imposed a ban on the use of all social media applications by session judges.

District Judiciary Director-General Muhammad Saeedullah has issued the notification in this regard after getting nod from LHC Chief Justice Qasim Khan Suri.
