CHENNAI: Tamil is the only language abundant with codes on the justice delivery system, morality and character of human beings, said Supreme Court Justice MM Sundresh.

Speaking at the foundation stone laying ceremony of court halls, judges’ chambers and bungalows in the Madras High Court on Wednesday, he said Tirukkural provides better guidelines on the justice delivery system.

“Tamil is abundant with literature on the justice delivery system. The language is synonymous with justice,” he said.

Citing couplets from Tirukkural, he stated that Tiruvalluvar does not belong to any particular religion or denomination and the saint-poet has not referred to any particular religion in his teaching.

Justice Sundresh called upon the men in the bar and bench to re-dedicate to the cause of justice and stressed the need for fairness and precision in delivering justice. He noted that justice delivery is not only confined to the judges but involves advocates, counsels and judicial employees whose cooperation holds the key.

Chief Justice SV Gangapurwala and Acting Chief Justice-designate R Mahadevan also addressed the gathering.
