Law Minister Anisul Haque said there is no obstacle to bring BNP acting chairman Tarique Rahman back home. We do not have a prisoner contract with Britain. But the talks are underway to bring him back.

He said this while inaugurating a program of the 141st training course of Senior Assistant Judge and equivalent judicial officers on Sunday at the Justice Administration Training Institute in the capital.

The law minister also said that under the Mutual Legal Assistant Act, some criminals can bring back the country despite not having a confinement agreement. The mutual legal assistant act is within our two countries. It is the United Nations enacted law and this cooperation is also among these two countries.

Replying to a question, Anisul said, the government is working to formulate a modern and updated road transport law for reducing road accidents in the country.

A bill on the proposed Road Transport Act, 2017 may be placed in the parliament during its upcoming budget session.

All the aspects including fitness of the transports, training of drivers and their punishments will be incorporated in the proposed law, he said.

The government will hold stakeholders before finalizing the proposed Road Transport Act.

The program was presided over by Justice Khandaker Musa Khaled, Director General of the Justice Administration Training Institute.
