Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain on Sunday said the judgments of the Supreme Court will be pronounced soon in Bangla.
“The judgments of the Supreme Court will be given in Bangla soon. That is why works are going on,” he said.
The Chief Justice was talking to reporters after paying homage to the language movement martyrs at the Central Shaheed Minar in Dhaka on the occasion of Amar Ekushey and the International Mother Language Day.
He said as per the directives of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, a translation cell has been formed and works have already started to this end.
Noting that the use of a software began in December last aiming to deliver judgments in Bangla, he said all the judgments of the apex court are being automatically translated from English to Bangla.
“When the conversion work is completed, we will do it in a more disciplined way,” he said.
Judges of both the Appellate Division and the High Court Division of the Supreme Court were present on the occasion.
