“Everyone has to follow safety measures at the courtrooms as per previous directives of the High Court Division”
The Supreme court has announced to resume the regular activities with physical presence at all lower civil and criminal courts and tribunals from August 5 after a long period of virtual proceedings due to Covid-19.
A notice signed by the Registrar General of the Supreme Court Mohammad Ali Akbar on Thursday night was issued in this regard.
The Chief Justice took the decision after consulting with senior justices of the Supreme Court.
The notification further said, "Everyone has to follow safety measures at the courtrooms as per previous directives of the High Court Division."
An ordinance on May 10 allowed the courts to run trial proceedings through video conferences and other digital facilities after the outbreak of coronavirus.
Since then, the courts have been conducting their activities virtually.
