Law, justice and parliamentary affairs minister Anisul Huq on Sunday rejected the idea of separate secretariat for judiciary, saying, it is an unrealistic demand.
‘There is no separate secretariat for judiciary in any democratic or undemocratic countries in the world. It doesn’t exist in any 193 countries under United Nations. So under the present circumstances, forming separate secretariat for judiciary is an unrealistic idea. But yes, we cannot say what will happen in the future,’ he said.
Anisul came up with the observations while talking to newsmen after attending the inaugural session of 21st Judicial Administration Training Course for district and sessions judges and equivalent officials at the judicial Administrative Training Institute in Dhaka.
The matter of forming separate secretariat for the judiciary came into discussion following one of the 12 directions given by court in the verdict of Masdar Hossain case.
Presided over by JATI director general justice Khandaker Musa Khaled, the programme was also addressed by law secretary Abu Saleh Sheikh Md Zahirul Haque, among others.
