KPK's Drive for Justice

PESHAWAR: Sweat poured down Judge Fazal Wadood’s back as he sat perched behind a desk inside the custom-built green bus court.

The latest weapon in Pakistan’s battle against a creaking judicial system, the $98,000 mobile court allows Judge Wadood to preside over cases and disputes that have dragged on for years because of the slow grinding process involved in regular courts.

The situation has helped build frustration among the people and increased calls for Islamic sharia law at the government’s expense.

The bus has been set up by the high court in the northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) province.
