DHAKA, Jan 13, 2019 (BSS) – Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Minister
Anisul Huq today said the government has initiated the process to bring back
fugitive Tarique Rahman.
“The government is very much active to bring back fugitive convicts and
execute verdicts against them. We will take initiatives to put the cases of
crimes against humanity on Appellate Division cause list,” he said.
Anisul Huq said these while talking to newsmen after addressing the 38th
foundation course for Assistant Judges at Judicial Administration Training
Institute (JATI) here in the capital.
The minister also urged the judges to inspire justice seekers to
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), adding, “They will take it seriously if
you can make them to understand.”
“The developed countries always advice people for ADR and that’s why ninety
percent of cases are resolved out of the courtroom, lessening the pressure on
judiciary,” Anisul said.
The minister said the role of the judges is most important in establishing
rule of law in the country.
“The contribution of quality judiciary for rule of law, financial
development, strengthening democracy and poverty eradication is undeniable.
So, the government is providing all kinds of cooperation to judiciary so that
it can present people a quality service,” Anisul added.
Presided over by JATI Director General Justice Khondker Musa Khaled, the
programme was also addressed by Law and Justice Division Secretary Abu Saleh
Sheikh Md Zahirul Haque.
