Find effective justice delivery system: Law Minister

Law Minister Barrister Shafique Ahmed on Saturday urged both the bench and the bar members and also the police to find out an effective mode in dispensation of justice eschewing inordinate delay to increase people’s confidence in the judiciary. “A calendar can be prepared for disposing of the criminal cases fixing the timeline for investigation, testimony of both the prosecution and defence witnesses. The procrastination of cases would be removed through introducing such application,” he said.
The minister said this while inaugurating a two-day workshop, ‘Formation of case management committee and its activation,’ under an ongoing project titled Justice Sector Facility, at the Bidyut Bhaban in the capital,
Barrister Shafique said, “It’s possible to properly conduct cases and court-introduced case management if the judges, lawyers and police put in their concerted efforts in this regard.”
The Ministry of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs in association with UNDP and UKAID organised the workshop.
Under the Justice Sector Project, Pabna and Comilla districts have been taken up as pilot project areas to prepare an effective model of case management committee.
Chaired by Law Secretary ASSM Zahirul Huq, the workshop was addressed, among others, by Joint Secretary to the Law Ministry Syed Aminul Islam, Pabna District and Sessions Judge M Hassan Imam, Comilla District and Sessions Judge A R Masud, and Public Prosecutors.
