Federal Communications Secretary Shoaib Ahmed Siddiqui on Tuesday launched the “Justice Help Line” in Islamabad.
While addressing the launching ceremony, he said that the provision of legal and moral assistance to the poor and oppressed segments of society for immediate justice was critical. “Saving the life of a human being is just like saving the whole of humanity,” he said.
The journey of providing legal assistance starts from Babul-Islam in Sindh and is successfully moving towards the other parts of the country.
Siddiqui said that the office-bearers and workers of the helpline are providing legal services to the needy and deprived people of the capital.
He added that the service was being offered voluntarily and was commendable.
Moreover, a detailed briefing was also given to the participants regarding the Justice Helpline, in which it was told that an informative calendar is being published from this platform.
Furthermore, conferences and workshops will also be arranged to train court reporters, where officers relating to the investigation and prosecution will share their experiences and observations.
