AL works for establishing rule of law

by Staff Correspondent, Dhaka:

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said her government led by Awami League party established the rule of law in Bangladesh, brining it out of the culture of impunity.

She made these remarks when the newly elected leaders of Bangladesh Supreme Court Bar Association paid a courtesy call on her at her official Ganabhaban residence on Monday, according to state-run Bangladesh Sangbad Sangstha news agency.

Hasina congratulated the newly elected leaders of the association.

She said BNP (Bangladesh Nationalist Party) had introduced the culture of forced disappearance, killing and lawlessness by proclamation of the indemnity ordinance over the assassination of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman with most of his family members.

Hasina, the eldest daughter of Bangabandhu, said she had no right to seek justice and to get justice after the assassination of Father of the Nation.

“It was a gross violation of human rights. Today, we’ve been able to free the country from the situation of not getting justice. The Awami League government always believes in justice,” she added.

She said the Awami League government has made arrangements for people to get justice.

“Our government has digitalized the judicial system so people can get justice in a short time, not facing sufferings,” she said.

The trial proceedings were made virtual during the Covid-19 pandemic so that people can get justice in a short time, staying at home, she added.

Hasina regretted people’s suffering due to electricity shortfall amid the heatwave saying her government was trying the best to tackle the situation.

She said her country witnessed impressive development due to the continuation of democracy for the last 14 and half years and it graduated to a developing country only for dedicated efforts of the Awami League government.

“We’ve been working to make Bangladesh a developed and prosperous country,” she added.

Law Minister Anisul Huq and AL advisory council member and senior lawyer Yusuf Hossain Humayun were present at the meeting.
