Mangalore, July 14: The Society for Fast Justice launched its Mangalore Service Centre on July 13 at Rohan Corporation conference centre at Balmatta. “The Society for Fast Justice” is a national level public forum for enabling ’Fast, Fair and Economic’ justice from the courts of all types all over India.
Sri Pravin Patel, National Convener of the forum inaugurated the service. Addressing the gathering, he said, “The representatives of the forum are scouring the country to establish 100 service centres, given the portfolio it is an easy target for a start, nearly 20 societies have been registered as of now and many have been formed and are being formed. After several centres set up in the North of the country and a few in states like Tamil Nadu, Kerala, AP and now it is Karnataka.”
“Litigants are facing untold hardship and delay in courts of all levels thorough out the country. Beside poor quality delivery of services from police, courts are a nightmare for the impoverished and middle class citizen. The few officials who are honest do not find their voice heard, corruption, nepotism and goondaism are at play in all aspects of law courts and delay is totally a wide spread harassment,” he said.
The President of the function P.B. D’Souza said that a nine-member managing committee of the Fast Justice society is constituted in Mangalore.
Prof Vivek, a PUCL human rights activist and educator introduced the Forum activities and David D’Souza on behalf of the organizers proposed a vote of thanks.
