KCDR to award mediator accreditation certificates


KARACHI: Karachi Centre for Dispute Resolution (KCDR) will award mediator accreditation certificates to 18 muftis of Jamiatur Rasheed on Monday. The certification ceremony will be presided over by President KCDR, (former Chief Justice of Pakistan), Justice (retd) Saiduzzaman Siddiqui. The chief guest, Justice (retd) Mufti Muhammad Taqi Usmani, would distribute certificates amongst the participants. Prominent businessmen and office-bearers of Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry, members of  Sindh Bar Council and Bar Association and other prominent citizens will attend the ceremony. KCDRs mediation training in-charge, Ebrahim Saifuddin will also be present at the event. In December, Jamiatur Rasheed approached KCDR with regards to its training program. KCDR proceeded to train 18 muftis of Jamiatur Rasheed in January in line with its ideology that an institutionalized form of alternate dispute resolution will benefit the country greatly especially in these times. With the condition of the country deteriorating, there needs to be an alternate form to settle disputes amicably. Mediation has helped resolve a large number of disputes in foreign countries including the United Kingdom, the United States, Singapore and many others. KCDR, a not-for-profit organization, has been conducting mediation in all types of civil and corporate disputes. The organization has been successful in helping the release of $38,499,659 as settlement amount since its inception in 2007.  KCDR has previously also trained 440 judges of the district courts as well as numerous lawyers, and senior management from the corporate sector. In 2011 the Centre trained around 40 provincial and federal investigating officers of the Wafaqi Ombudsman Secretariat. On the request of the provincial government, KCDR in collaboration with Women Development Department (Government of Sindh) conducted mediation in women cases in different headquarters of Sindh except Karachi.
