Mr Justice Mushir Alam, Judge, Supreme Court of Pakistan, Saturday said that the emerging international challenges and problems and also the ever-present threat of terrorism has highlighted the role of international law, including international treaties and agreements.
He expressed these views in the certificate awarding ceremony at the conclusion of a one- week training course on “New Laws” for District and Sessions Judges from all over Pakistan, Azad Jammu & Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan at the Federal Judicial Academy on Saturday.
He said, “We do not live in an isolated island but in the globalized and integrated world. The world is interconnected as never before, thus, training courses and orientations both on new municipal as well as international laws are crucial to provide an opportunity to develop proficiency and insight into the global legal system for an effective dispensation of justice.”
Advising the newly promoted District and Sessions Judges, he said, “When we all acknowledge that Allah is the Supreme Master and our Lord then we must do and deliver everything as He enjoins on us, and abstain from what is forbidden to us. Sovereignty over the entire universe belongs to Allah and it is He who gives life and death and He has power over all things. A believer fears no one other than Allah.”
Twenty two newly promoted District and Sessions Judges from all over Pakistan, Azad Jammu and Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan were awarded certificates in the ceremony.
