Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto on Sunday criticised the state of the judicial system in the country and said justice is suffering.
In a tweet, he said that the judiciary needs reforms, giving an example of how the Law Reforms Commission headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar has never met since 2015 while under the rules the committee has to meet four times a year.
Law Reforms Commission headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan and has all provincial Chief Justices as members.Under the Rules,it has to meet 4 times a year. They haven’t met since 2015. While judges continue to play politician & do all jobs but theirs – justice suffers in Pakistan.
