Law Minister Anisul Huq on Sunday said the government had initiated the process to bring back BNP Acting Chairperson Tarique Rahman, a convict in several cases including 21st August grenade attack case, from abroad.
He said this to the journalists after inaugurating the 38th Foundation Training Course for the assistant judges and equivalent judicial officers at the Judicial Administration Training Institution (JATI) in the city.
At the programme, the Law Minister stressed the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) as a mechanism to solve the cases.
In the developed countries, 90 per cent cases are solved out of the court and thus the case backlog pressure on the judiciaries is eased, he said.
Anisul Huq asked the trainees to make justice seekers understand the importance of ADR to solve their cases.
The Inaugural programme was chaired by JATI Director General Khondker Musa Khaled.
The programme was attended by Law and Justice Division Secretary Abu Saleh Sheikh Md Zahirul Haque, JATI Director (Training) Md Golam Kibria, Deputy Director (Training) AFM Ahsanul Haque, Deputy Director (Research and Publication) AL Asad Md Mahmudul Islam, Assistant Director (Training) Nahid Niazi and Assistant Director (Administration) Md Badiuzzaman.
Law Minister Anisul Haque said the judges have to deliver justice in a short time as they are the last resort of the common people.
He told the reporters that the government would take initiative to dispose of the war crimes appeals at the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court.
