Law minister: 16th Amendment review in November
Minister of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Anisul Huq told the media that the government will file the review petition against the verdict on the 16th Amendment of the Constitution of Bangladesh before November is over. The law minister was addressing the media at the Supreme Court where he met with the attorney general to discuss the grounds for the review. He said the review will be filed within November. When asked if the government will seek to scrap the entire verdict, he replied: “We will be reviewing it – meaning we are challenging the whole verdict. We have been saying that the verdict was not proper, and will require some expunging. But we are looking to scrap the whole verdict.” The meeting between the law minister and attorney general was also attended by various other officials of the attorney general’s office. The Supreme Court announced the verdict on the 16th Amendment of the Constitution of Bangladesh on August 1. The government received a certified copy of the verdict on October 11, following which Attorney General Mahbubey Alam and 10 others were tasked to file a review petition. According to the law, the review petition has to be filed within a month of receiving the certified copy of the verdict. This article was first published in Bangla Tribune
