Court On Wheels Hits The Roads Of Pakistan

A while ago we wrote a blog post about Juice on the Go, a juice bar on wheels that roams the streets of Los Angeles. In this article we introduce you to a new concept — Justice on the Go.

The local authorities of Pakistan’s north-western province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa have introduced mobile courts. The aim of this initiative is to bring low-cost and quick justice to the doorsteps of the people. The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province is plagued by low levels of education and an overload of terrorism. As a result justice doesn’t work that efficient, explains This Big City.

Eleven green and white painted ‘bus courts’ will soon hit the roads of northwest Pakistan. With financial and technical support from the United Nations Development Programme and other foreign donors, the bus court has already solved 30 cases, both civil and criminal, during its first tour, according to the Times of Pakistan. The project is an official governmental attempt to decentralize services in hard-to-reach areas.
