    Opinion/Editorial:
  • Ensuring speedy justice:”
    The importance of quick and inexpensive justice can hardly be over-emphasised. In civilised societies the state and the government make sure that their judicial system is capable of dispensing justice to the litigants as expeditiously as possible and with minimum costs to bear. They are conscious of the fact that justice delayed is justice denied, and they invariably strive to ensure that justice is not only done but is also seen to be done. The laws pertaining to dispensation of justice and functioning of courts are made in conformity with these maxims. It is universally acknowledged that peace, tranquility and progress are inextricably linked to the prevalence of efficient and inexpensive justice in the society (http://nation.com.pk/E-Paper/Lahore/2017-02-10/page-6/detail-5)
  • An anti-women legal system:
    The passage of the Alternative Dispute Resolution Bill, 2016, recently by the National Assembly might have let the judiciary take a sigh of relief. A parallel legal system has been authorised by legislative corridors to help it rid of the backlog of cases, the resolution of which it had lackadaisical approach towards and for which it was getting a lot of flak. But there is a flip side to this bill. It is going to legalise primitive justice dispensation models like Jirga and Panchayat system in the country.

    Sports:
  • Tharanga gives Sri Lanka hope as Proteas eye 5-0:
    CENTURION: Sri Lanka trail 4-0, have not yet batted out 50 overs in the series, and continue to lack menace with the ball, but around Upul Tharanga’s sleek 119 at Newlands, a little hope has built. The hope is not necessarily that Sri Lanka can prevent a whitewash – although that is their immediate concern. The larger expectation is that perhaps there are the makings of a competitive top order in this present unit. Niroshan Dickwella’s fifties through the course of the limited-overs matches have suggested he can play a strong role in Sri Lanka’s future short-format sides. The quality of Tharanga’s 14th hundred – his first since 2013 – has also led some to believe he is on the verge of a renaissance in his own game. Despite this, South Africa have still been completely dominant, and have not really looked like losing at any point in the series (http://dailytimes.com.pk/e-paper/2017-02-10/lahore/9658/66760)
