LAHORE: A lawyer on Friday filed a petition in Lahore High Court (LHC) seeking suspension of vacations in the high court.
In the petition, Advocate AK Dogar has challenged the concept of court leaves saying that there was no concept of the court leaves in developed countries.
The petition said that the proceedings of hundreds of thousand cases kept in pending due to court vacations, which is an impediment in providing justice.
The petitioner also argued that long court vacations in summer are in contravention of the constitution.
The vacations make it impossible to provide rapid and prompt justice to the citizens, the petition said.
It is to mention here that the Lahore High Court will observe summer vacations this year from Monday, 1st July to 7th September.
