SCBA demands separate secretariat for judiciary
The Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) has demanded a separate, independent secretariat for the judiciary. SCBA President Zainul Abedin raised the demand at a press conference in Shaheed Shafiur Rahman auditorium of the Supreme Court on Thursday. Referring to the Supreme Court’s acceptance of the gazette notification on disciplinary rules for lower court judges, Zainul said: “We don’t want to speak against decisions and rulings of the Appellate Division. We have long been demanding a separate secretariat for the judiciary. We demand the gazette notification be amended and reissued in the light of the Masdar Hossain case verdict. “In the notification, there must be a mention of a secretariat that will be free from the Law Ministry’s interference.” Mentioning that a separate secretariat for the judiciary will help to ensure judicial independence, Zainul said: “Protection of the constitution, human rights, good governance, democracy, and voting rights all depend on an independent judicial system. This is why we call on all to remain careful about the judiciary’s independence.” The landmark judgement in Masdar Hossain case was decided on the issue of how far the independence of judiciary is guaranteed by the constitution, and whether the provisions of the constitution are followed in practice. Among others, SCBA General Secretary AM Mahbub Uddin Khokon and Senior Assistant Secretary Shamima Sultana were also present there. This article was first published on Bangla Tribune
