The Lahore High Court (LHS) has banned the use of all Social Media applications to session judges.

District Judiciary Director-General Muhammad Saeedullah issued the notification to all the sessions’ judges after the endorsement from LHC Chief Justice Qasim Khan Suri.

The notification said, “Use of social media applications is against the dignity of judges. Judicial officers use Twitter and social media applications to spread their messages, which is also a violation of the Code of Conduct,”

“Judicial officers who upload messages on social media are later picked up by electronic and print media, without any proof.”
