ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) President Ali Ahmad Kurd on Friday said that the restored judiciary had brought no changes in the institution that ultimately disappointed the public at large.

Talking to reporters on the premises of the Supreme Court, he urged the higher

judiciary to strive hard to make the people believe in the judicial system of the country. Ali Ahmed Kurd said that the legal fraternity had waged a war for the restoration of the judiciary and the Constitution and launched a massive movement, and finally it succeeded in restoring the judiciary of November 2, 2007.

However, he said that the restored deposed judiciary brought no changes to the institution. “It was the lawyers’ movement that forced a powerful person of our history to leave the Presidency and the good faith of lawyers made it possible to restore the deposed judiciary,” Kurd said.

The SCBA president said that a large number of litigants visited the Supreme Court but were not provided justice due to which a sense of deprivation and disappointment was prevailing among the masses.

He further said that the Supreme Court should devise a unified system for smooth and rapid processing of applications received from litigants, and they should be intimated at the earliest before their cases are taken up.
