Law, justice and parliamentary affairs minister Anisul Huq on Sunday said that the government had initiated the process to bring back fugitive Tarique Rahman.
‘The government is very active to bring back fugitive convicts and execute the verdicts against them. We will take initiatives to put the cases of crimes against humanity on the Appellate Division cause list,’ he said.
Anisul Huq said these while talking to journalists after addressing the 38th foundation course for assistant judges at the Judicial Administration Training Institute in the capital.
The minister also urged the judges to raise awareness among justice seekers about Alternative Dispute Resolution. He said, ‘They will take it seriously if you can make them how the process works.’
‘Developed countries always advice people to opt for Alternative Dispute Resolution and that is why ninety per cent of cases are resolved out of the courtroom, lessening the pressure on judiciary,’ Anisul said.
The minister said that the role of the judges was 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. The government is providing all kinds of cooperation to the judiciary so that it can provide people with quality service,’ Anisul added.
Presided over by the institute’s director general Justice Khondker Musa Khaled, the programme was also addressed by law and justice division secretary Abu Saleh Sheikh Md Zahirul Haque.
