Wisdom, Not arguments is the key to solving problems:
Certificates awarding ceremony of training course for Prosecutors at FJA
Humanity Comes First, then Prosecution: Mr. Justice (Retd.) Abdul Shakoor Paracha, Federal Secretary, Ministry of Law and Justice
Islamabad: A Certificate Awarding Ceremony was held at the Federal Judicial Academy on December 14, 2018 in which Mr. Justice (Retd.) Abdul Shakoor Paracha, Federal Secretary, Ministry of Law and Justice was the Chief Guest.
At the ceremony, thirty two Prosecutors from all over Pakistan including National Accountability Bureau (NAB), and Pakistan Air Force JAG Officers received the certificates to mark the successful completion of a five- day training on ‘Role of Prosecutors in Quick Disposal of Criminal Cases”.
While addressing the participants, Mr. Justice (Retd.) Shakoor Paracha highlighted the role of prosecutors in the Criminal Justice System and the role of FJA to impart training to judges and others related to the administration of justice system.
“Prosecutors must always keep humanity first. Humanity comes first, subsequently comes the prosecution. They must think if they were in place of the victim. While presenting case, the prosecutor needs to be just and reasonable. They should always keep in mind that it is not the argument but wisdom which is the key to solving problems,” Federal Law Secretary concluded.
DG of the Academy, Mr. Hayat Ali Shah, in his welcome address stated that a persecutor was a bridge between the Court and the State. The position of the prosecutor is thus one of trust.
He added that for quick disposal of criminal cases, prosecutors need knowledge, but most importantly they need skills to assist the Court in arriving at the truth.
