LAHORE - Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar has taken yet another step in the right direction for redressing the public complaints.
CJP on Sunday formed two human rights cell to address the grievances of the citizens – one of them dedicated to minorities’ problems.
“We don’t decide matters merely on hue and cry rather we do that on the basis of evidence,” he said while hearing several suo motu notices at the apex court’s Lahore registry.
Around 20 persons, including women, approached the chief justice during an open court.
A man appeared on behalf of Mustafa Town and said that 1,300 houses had been “frozen” by the Lahore Development Authority and their sale and purchase was not allowed. The family in the area wanted to sell their properties but the LDA did not allow them which was against the law.
At this, the CJP asked the man whether they moved any petition in the high court or not. He replied that a judicial commission was required to be made on the issue. However, the CJP asked the Human Rights Cell to take comments from the respondents.
