Lahore High Court (LHC) Chief Justice Muhammad Qasim Khan has ordered the authorities concerned to set up judicial facilitation centres at tehsil and district headquarters level for the citizens and lawyers across the province.
The purpose to establish the centres is to provide easy, efficient and corruption-free services to lawyers and citizens.
The facilitation centres would provide certified copies of FIRs, certified copies of medico-legal certificates, attestation of prisoners’ power of attorney (vakalatnama) from jails and all information related to the status of court cases.
Besides judicial staff, focal persons from police, hospitals and prisons would also be posted in the centres.
The facilitation centres would be connected to the online systems of the judiciary, police, hospitals and prisons.
Litigants and lawyers will be able to easily avail the above-mentioned facilities from one window.
According to the order of the LHC chief justice, district and sessions judges of each district would ensure provision of all kinds of facilities at the facilitation centres by establishing close and timely liaison with the departments concerned and stakeholders.
