Law Minister Anisul Huq on Thursday inaugurated the District and Session Judge Court in Bhola’s Charfesson upazila.

It’s the first district and sessions judge court established at upazila level to facilitate people to get judicial services at their doorstep, officials said.

Addressing a function at Brojogopal Town Hall on the occasion, the minister said that no one will be left out of the ongoing development as the wheels of economic growth are moving forward under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. 

Pointing out the country’s socio-economic progress, Anisul Huq said Sheikh Hasina has constructed the Padma Multipurpose Bridge, introduced Bangladesh as an atomic energy country, and made the country a role model of development.

About the legal procedure against BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia, the minister said the court sent her to jail for five years for eating up orphans’ money. The Appellate Division extended the term to 10 years. Here, the government can do nothing as the law is taking its own course.

Chairman of Parliamentary Standing Committee on Ministry of Youth and Sports Abdullah Al Islam Jakob attended the function as the special guest. Jakob thanked the prime minister for establishing the District and Session Judge Court in Charfesson.

Senior District and Sessions Judge Ferdous Ahmed chaired the function.

Earlier, the law minister inaugurated the district judge court and the office of the Charfesson Bar Association.
