“The quality of democracy depends on the quality of justice; For a healthy democracy, a vibrant judicial system is essential. The COVID-19 pandemic has created many problems for many institutions, including the justice system. long holidays and non-functioning courts and lack of virtual conferencing facilities in rural and remote areas. My fellow judges and I tried to allow the litigant to obtain justice more quickly. As of May, we have recommended over 106 judges to various high courts and 9 chief justices to various high courts. The government cleared some of them and the Honorable Minister of Law assured that the rest of the things would come in a day or two. I thank the government for removing these vacancies and providing quick access to justice for the people. These appointments will take care of the wait to some extent. I seek the cooperation and support of the government to enable access to justice and strengthen democracy,” said CJ NV Ramana on Saturday.
