Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Saturday hoped that judges, being accountable to the country, its people and the Constitution, will help ensure the rule of law and justice.

"I don’t want that like us someone will wait for years [for justice] while bearing the pain of losing their kith and kin. Let all have justice and shelter of law that are described in our Constitution," she said, reports UNB.

The Prime Minister said this while addressing the National Judicial Conference-2019 with the theme of “Justice for Peace and Development” at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre.

Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain presided over the inaugural programme where Law Minister Anisul Huq spoke at the conference as special guest. Law and Justice Division Secretary of the Law Ministry Md Golam Sarwar also spoke where Registrar General of the Supreme Court Md Ali Akbar delivered the welcome speech.

The daylong conference will discuss all relevant issues, including backlog of cases, digitalisation in the judiciary and effective court administration management.

Judges from the Appellate and High Court divisions of the Supreme Court and subordinate courts across the country attended the function.
