Abstract

The purpose of the present study was to analyze the requirements of a fair trial in criminal matters. The right to a fair trial has been incorporated in all the international, regional and national legal instruments which necessitate an inquiry to see whether Pakistani legal framework fulfills these requirements or not. The present study, after deploying doctrinal research methodology, found that the requirements for a fair trial in criminal cases in international instruments are similar and Pakistani legal framework incorporates these requirements with the exception to compensation. The study suggested that the statutory requirements in Pakistan must be incorporated in constitution.
