Following Islamabad and Karachi, an e-court system has been officially launched, in collaboration with NADRA, in Quetta. The e-court heard its first cases on Monday where a three-member bench, headed by the CJP Asif Saeed Khosa heard 5 cases through a video link.
Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed and Justice Umar Atta Bandial were the other two members of the bench. Justice Asif Saeed Khosa said,
After the court vacations, a special bench will hear the cases through video link. By the e-court system, time and money of people will be saved.
The CJP termed the day historic for the people of Balochistan and promised a dedicated bench for hearing cases through video link. The apex court will also hear cases through a video link from Peshawar.
The first phase of online hearings will continue until July 18.
Due to technical difficulties, the system was launched from the Supreme Court’s Karachi registry.
