Chief Justice Saqib Nisar to open ‘free’ legal clinic after retirement

January 13, 2019

Pakistan’s top judge has vowed to continue with his mission of helping the oppressed after retirement too. 

Chief Justice Saqib Nisar announced on Sunday that he will open a ‘free’ legal clinic after stepping down from his post. The top judge will retire on January 17.

“The clinic will help the people who can’t afford law firms otherwise,” he remarked while speaking to a delegation of journalists in Lahore. He said that the poor have as much right to justice as the rich and powerful.

    sir , would have been much better if you could have put emphasis on judicial reforms so these people for whom you will fight after retirement could have had justice during your tenure.
    your name would have been written in history with golden words but like others, you also didn’t do much when ALLAH had given you power.
    we wish you good luck sir in your effort to help the one who need most
