ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry said Thursday that the Supreme Court reserved the judicial authority to take notice of any issue, DawnNews reported.

Addressing a full court session, Chief Justice Iftikhar said no institution in the country had the right to interfere in another institution’s domain. He said the judiciary was a role model for other state institutions.

The chief justice added that no institution, on its own, could establish good governance in the country.

He showed satisfaction over the pace with which cases were being concluded by the courts. He said people’s faith in the judiciary has been restored and people were consulting to the courts more than ever before.

He said the judges' hard work was leading to better results for the country.

Chief Justice Iftikhar said he had sent recommendations to the federation to sort out the issue of shortage of judges in the country.

"I have not received any response although six months have passed since making the request,” he added.

The chief justice said he was receiving petitions from all over the country regarding human rights violations.
