‘All Jamaat leaders with war crimes links to face trial’
Published: 06:22 PM, 26 February 2019
Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Anisul Huq on Tuesday said if any Jamaat-e-Islami leader is found to have links with war crimes, he will have to face trial no matter which name the party takes in future.
He said, “Look, Jamaat’s appeal against the High Court judgment that canceled its registration as a political party is currently pending with the Appellate Division.”
“If the apex court upholds the High Court order, Jamaat’s registration will finally be scrapped and they will not be able to exist in Bangladesh as a political party,” he also said.
Law Minister told reporters as they asked him about the status of the appeal of Jamaat at secretariat after receiving the proclamation of New York state governor to observe September 25 as “Bangladesh Immigration Day” from Muktodhara Foundation.
Muktodhara Foundation general secretary Biswajit Saha and member Eusuf Reza handed the proclamation to the minister.
The law minister further said the government is considering appointing thirty percent public prosecutors in the current tenure through the Judicial Service Commission and the rest will be appointed from the political quota.
“We are considering increasing the salaries of public prosecutors. I hope the salary hike will become effective from July 1, 2020. We would need Taka 267 crore extra for this. I have already talked to the Prime Minister in this regard,” he said.
Meanwhile, the law minister at a separate program in the Supreme Court on Tuesday said e-judiciary would be introduced in the country in phases.
Anisul Huq said this while inaugurating e-filing service at Solicitor Bhaban at the Supreme Court.
He said, “Technology has connected the Law Ministry and the Solicitor Wing today. If we had not got connected, we would have fallen behind, we would not have been able to reach justice swiftly to the justice-seekers and it would have been a failure for the judiciary.”
The minister said because of the launching of e-filing service, now the corrupt officials will not be able to hide files.
“We would also be able to ensure accountability. We would be able to see who is now holding the file…” the minister added.
The law minister said the attorney general office and solicitor office will be brought under CCTV camera coverage within a month.
Attorney General Mahbubey Alam at the program said e-filing service would also be introduced at his office and other judicial offices.
“E-filing service would become handy in stopping bail fraud,” he said.
Presided over by Law Division Secretary Abu Saleh Sheikh Md Zahirul Haque, the inauguration function was also addressed by Solicitor Jesmin Ara, among others.
