KARACHI: Pre-training certificates were handed over to new civil judges and judicial magistrates in a ceremony held on Saturday at a local hotel. Sindh High Court Chief Justice Ahmed Ali M Sheikh expressed happiness that the new judges have managed to secure this position through hard work.

Sheikh advised the new magistrates to work tirelessly day and night to ensure that justice is delivered. He stated that for a judge, there were no high or low profile cases, but each one was just as important. He added that the decisions may be faulty or delayed but intentions should be clean. For this, he asked the magistrates to keep their conscience clear. He said that justice is the attribute of Allah and if He has chosen you to be an agent in its execution, you should ensure that the task is completed. He also stated that the judges should not be dictators and reminded them that they were sitting at an important position.

Justice (retd) Khilji Arif, a former Supreme Court judge in his address said that it was easy to simply talk and give a lecture but difficult to work hard and give a well prepared lecture. He said that it was the duty of the courts to ensure justice among the people and added that we have to try our best to dispense justice as quickly as possible.
He informed the participants that they had intended to give the lawyers the best training and added that many other lawyers will also be given similar training in interior Sindh. He stated that he was proud of the coming judges and they should continue to work hard.
He shared that the judges have to take in consideration many things when giving a verdict and they should be trained such that they are able to hand appropriate punishment to the guilty party.
Justice (retd) Arif said that lawyers should know the basics of law so that they could understand the working of the police, investigation officer and others in the court. He recommended that the prosecution department, police and others should also be trained in conducting investigations.
