KARACHI: Chief Justice Sajjad Ali Shah of High Court of Sindh on Monday paid rich tributes to ex-judges, legal luminaries and senior advocates who passed away during previous three years.
He was addressing a combined full court reference held after a gap of three long years.
Referring to the judgments rendered by Justice Saleem Akhtar, Justice Kamal Mansur Alam, Justice Zafar Saud Mirza, Justice Mamoon Kazi Justice Rana Bhagwan Das and others he said that legal wizards set the new vistas in the realm of Justice.
He said that Justice Saleem Akhtar was the first judge to a suo-moto notice in the case of atomic waster dumping in Balochistan province. He said that similarly senior lawyer left a legacy of representing their client to a level of excellence and these great people left trakes to be treeded upon by junior lawyers.
Honorary Secretary Sindh Bar Council Barrister Salahuddin Ahmed referred to wastage of a whole days work on the demise of a lawyer suggested that instead of disturbing the entire court work at the cost of litigants, it would be more appropriate that lawyers and judged gather after days work, maintain a silence for few minutes as a mark of respect and offer fateha for the departed soul.
CJ SHC appreciated the suggestion and said it could be implemented if everyone is on boars ( lawyer association).
