PHC will listen to cases starting tomorrow
PESHAWAR: The Peshawar High Court (PHC) will return to work from tomorrow (Monday) amid special security measures against the corona pandemic.
The court closed last month because of the corona pandemic. A comprehensive plan has been designed to continue work on all PHC benches under the direction of Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Waqar Ahmad Seth.
A team of doctors conducts crash training courses for officers and staff to adopt the principles of distance and social safety.
Staff and officers have also been equipped with personal protective equipment.
According to the decisions taken for the safety of all, the perpetrators of the case must wear masks and gloves before entering the venue.
They will be examined upon entry and people who have symptoms of Covid-19 will be prevented from entering the court. Visitors, staff and officers will pass a strict corona protection protocol by measuring their temperature through thermal weapons and passing a series of disinfectants sprayed through a fog fan.
They will be encouraged to wash their hands frequently with soap. Official records will also pass a series of disinfectants before being submitted to a judge.
A campaign inside and outside the Peshawar High Court was held to create awareness about the virus and special advisors to prevent outbreaks. The central control room at PHC will oversee staff, officers and visitors with the aim of ensuring social distance and other preventive measures.
Meanwhile, PHC Registrar Khawaja Wajihuddin said at the closing ceremony of the Covid-19 protection training course for officers and staff said the pandemic could be controlled if everyone observed and followed the principles of safety.
A joint prayer is offered at the completion of the Khatmul Quran for the safety and welfare of every citizen and people throughout the world.
