False testimonies are mockery of justice: CJP


Chief Justice of Pakistan Asif Saeed Khosa on Friday criticised people for giving false testimonies, saying suspects are released from jails on the basis of false statements and then the judiciary is blamed for such travesty.

During a hearing of a case relating to murder, the chief justice said the top court has started an action to put an end to false testimonies.

“There is no justice without truth,” the chief justice said, adding those who can’t speak truth should not then ask for 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 hopefully we will bring back the truth in courts,” he said.
