Administration of Justice in Mizoram
Justice is dynamic/changing. It requires a just state of affairs. In alignes with morality and proper distribution of favours and losses. This is possible by a democratic social order. This book deals with two systems of justice viz., custom based on the rule of law, operating side by side, which create mess/hutch-putch. The custom based justice is uncodified. The modern legal justice is carried out by the state court as per the justice rules of 1937 Framed by the colonial rulers. Crime had previously been almost absent in the Mizo Society. Presently, crimes of different nature, (criminal and civil) are increasing owing to the enlarging money economy, the loosening of social bonds, the emergence of classes of the neo-middle rich and the poor and the concentration of wealth at the top and poverty at the bottom of the social hierachy. The book emphasises more thrust on legislation and trail of cases by the State Courts rather than the District Councils' Courts, trying cases by uncodified, customary laws and also suggests to streamline the existing judical administration in order to have an uniform and impartial justice . The complete separation of executive and judiciary to achieve the objective of justice is suggested. The book, which includes fourteen articles/research papers, deals, objectively with a theoretical concept of judical administration, various issues challenges/problems and constraints pertaining to judicial administration and also provides policy insights for the future and will be highly useful and valuable. The study briefly is an invaluable guide/help to the further research on the subject.
