SC establishes human rights cells in Lahore, Karachi
The top judge has upgraded the human rights cell of the court as the Directorate of Human Rights, expecting that it will help in better handling human rights issues.
The CJP has also set up a Minority Wing at the Human Rights Directorate in Islamabad to safeguard the rights of minorities in the country, in line with the Constitution and international commitments.
Earlier there was only one office of the human rights cell at Islamabad, however, it was insufficient as applications relating to human rights issues had increased many folds in the last few months.
Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar had outlined the Supreme Court’s agenda for 2018 in January, saying that the court would be focusing on human rights issues, particularly those relating to the people’s right to quality education and healthcare.
The top judge is making whirlwind visits to the hospitals and educational institutes, especially medical colleges, to keep an eye on the quality of services being provided to the masses.
The Chief Justice had also suspended the educational heads of Punjab University and Lahore College for Women University last week.
