The Prosecution holds vital role and significant position in the Criminal Justice System. Therefore its prime duty is to uphold Rule of Law and to protect the innocent from the anguish of unnecessary litigations. Use of technology for effective investigation and successful prosecution is the utmost cry of the day as changing trends in crimes contemplates the use of technology to tackle the most gruesome and barbaric offenders involved.

It is a matter of pride for me that Prosecution Directorate has successfully completed 14 years since its establishment. This year we have made great progress despite all challenges and limited resources. Significant achievements, commitments and valuable contributions of the Prosecution are integral to our success and progress.

Being newly born institution after its separation from the police wing and law department, the coordination between police and prosecution is vital for successful prosecution of cases. Considerable efforts are being made to improve the coordination between these two stakeholders in criminal justice system.

The digitalization of the prosecution work and gauging the performance of prosecutors through the introduction of CMMS (Case Management & Monitoring System) is vital for successful prosecution. Alongwith this, the establishment of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Prosecution Academy is the land mark achievement during the year and would enhance the capacity of the prosecution.

The unparalleled challenges and problems faced by the prosecution officers in the newly merged districts of erstwhile Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) have been taken on priority basis to resolve their issues so that they could perform their duties with utmost dedication and zeal enabling the citizens of merged districts to get speedy and inexpensive justice as provided under Article-4 and 25 of the constitution of the Pakistan.

Prosecution is a prime component of Criminal Justice System and the KP Prosecution Department was established under The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Prosecution Service (Constitution, Functions and Powers) Act, 2005. The objective of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Prosecution Act, 2005 is based on the touchstone of Article 37 (d) of the Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan 1973 which ensures inexpensive and expeditious justice to safeguard the interest of the public with a view to protect the rights of common people. The objective of the Prosecution service is to secure and achieve speedy and inexpensive Justice Process to safeguard the interest of the public with a view to protect their rights. To represent the truth for the acquittal of innocent and conviction of the guilty and to protect them from the anguish of unnecessary litigations. Despite meager resources, the achievements of the Prosecution Service are unprecedented as in the year 2020, the conviction rate in the cases registered under Ordinary Laws was 77.1% despite the fact that Model Courts were established and cases were disposed of at high ratio. Similarly, in the cases registered under the Anti-Terrorism Act, the conviction rate was 19.5% despite the fact that cases of merged districts of erstwhile FATA were transferred to the Anti-Terrorism Courts on the direction of Peshawar High Court, Peshawar. In order to make the Prosecution Service more vibrant and dynamic, the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Prosecution Act, 2005 is being amended to give access of appearance of Prosecutors before the Superior Court like other sister Provinces after establishing the office of Prosecutor General. In this regard necessary amendments in the Act ibid are already under process. Since, Model Courts are established throughout Khyber Pakhtunkhwa for disposal of criminal cases hence Prosecution Officers are deputed despite meager number of Prosecution Officers to perform their duties with utmost dedication and zeal in order to dispose of all the cases in time. Similarly, in order to overcome the shortage of Prosecutors, the recruitment of newly Prosecutors are under way and Assistant Public Prosecutors and Deputy Public Prosecutors have been promoted recently. Last but not the least, in the near future, latest technology in shape of CMMS is going to be operationalized and implemented by which records of criminal case would be digitalized and reporting would be enhanced resulting the performance of the Department would be improved. Furthermore various trainings inland and foreign have been imparted to the Prosecution Officers for their capacity building and enhancement of their Prosecution skills.

The provision of justice to its citizens is the first and foremost responsibility of the state and thus one of the basic functions of the Government. The purpose of criminal justice system is to protect the poor and vulnerable and punish those guilty of committing crimes. The criminal justice system comprises of mainly three functions to achieve this objective: Investigation Prosecution Adjudication Prosecution occupies a critical position between investigation and adjudication. Without quality prosecution services, however good the quality of investigation and adjudication may be the criminal justice system will not be able to protect the weak and vulnerable, and bring persons to account for wrong doing. It also ensures that investigation and adjudication meet the standards prescribed by law. Quality prosecution is an essential aspect of an effective criminal justice system.
