Speak truth if justice is required, says CJP

Life sentence means life imprisonment, not 25-year jail: CJP

ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Justice Asif Saeed Khan Khosa observed on Friday that the people who dare not speak truth should not then ask for justice. There is no justice without truth.

The chief justice passed the remarks while hearing a review petition on a murder case. He said that suspects are released from jails on false testimonies and then the judiciary is blamed for this travesty of justice.

“Truth is spoken because of Allah’s commandment. Allah has directed us to speak the truth even if it goes against parents, siblings or close associates,” the chief justice remarked. “We have started taking actions against false testimonies and hopefully we will bring back truth in the courts,” he said.
