Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Anisul Huq yesterday said the matter of getting bail by BNP chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia in graft case lies completely with the court, there is no
question of any interference by government in it, reports BSS. “The judiciary used to be controlled by government during BNP tenure. But the situation is not the same now. Judiciary is completely independent
now,” he said, the report further suggests. The minister said these while addressing inaugural function of 21st special training course for government pleaders (GP) and public prosecutors (PP) at Judicial Administration Training Institute (JATI) yesterday. Presided over by JATI Director General Justice Khondker Musa Khaled, the inaugural ceremony was also addressed by Law and Justice Division secretary Md Golam Sarwar.
While talking about reforming Land Survey Act, the law minister said the act would be raised at next parliament session in this regard and once reformed, senior assistant judges and assistant judges too would be able to conduct the concerned trial alongside a joint district judge.
Urging GPs and PPs to observe their duties with the mentality of serving people for expanding the idea of Access to Justice, Anisul said they have to assist the case management process while complying with court’s direction.
