KARACHI: Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry on Saturday said that the Karachi law and order case has been conducted according to the constitution and the principles of justice, DawnNews reported.

Speaking to lawyers in Karachi about the situation of law and order, the Chief Justice said that their effort was to quell the unrest in the city by addressing the root causes of the issue.

Now that the verdict has been issued in the case, he said that it is up to the other institutions how they implement the courts order.

“The situation would have been better if the order had been implemented properly,” said Justice Chaudhry.

He added that if free and fair elections are held, then the law and order condition would improve.

Moreover, the CJ added that all institutions were working according to their roles set in the constitution. “The future is bright wherever the judiciary is independent and the people have access to their rights,” he said.

Chaudhry said that it would be better if the lawyers refrained from taking the extreme step of going on strike, since delay in the dispensation of justice would cause disillusionment among the people.
