ISLAMABAD: The Chief Justice of Islamabad High Court (IHC), Athar Minallah, inaugurated a state-of-the-art district courts complex in the capital territory, after a lapse of nearly six decades.
Speaking on the occasion, Justice Minallah, who has been recommended for elevation to the Supreme Court by the Judicial Commission of Pakistan, stated that the district courts were never a priority of the executive.
The CJ also lauded the CDA and the Frontier Works Organisation (FWO) for finishing the project in just eight months.
According to him, the goal of this endeavor was to resolve civil and criminal disputes and to assist litigants who sued government agencies in court.
As per the details, the project’s cost was Rs. 1,470 million and it involved the construction of 74 courtrooms, appropriate waiting areas for litigants, a bar room, a canteen, and a press room.
Besides, the IHC’s new facility has also been built which Justice Minallah plans to inaugurate today.
