Supreme Court Bar Association laments revival of military courts
He also cited the 1993 Azizullah Memon case in the Supreme Court, where it was decided that handing over the adjudication of rights and trial of offences to the executive actually impeded justice.
Appreciating the role of the outgoing judge, he said that Justice Hani was one of those courageous judges who had refused to take oath on Provisional Constitution Order (PCO).
Sharing stance of the bar, Rizvi said that the judicial system in Pakistan neither in the past nor presently ever failed to perform its duties in accordance with the law and constitution. He highlighted that it was the failure of civilian and military governments which always neglected the institution of judiciary.
Strengthening the judiciary and the para-legal staff, besides improving performance of intelligence agencies were the only ways to curb terrorism in the country, he added.
He stated that terrorists could be brought to book only through an effective civilian justice system, which enjoys credibility among the masses. “Military courts have never been nor will be a way to counter terrorism,” Rizvi said.
