‘Anti-discrimination law draft to be sent to govt in 2 weeks’

  • Published at 06:37 am March 22nd, 2014

Law Commission Chairman and former chief justice ABM Khairul Haque has said they will send the draft of the law for ending discrimination to the government for making law in parliament in two weeks.

“As three years have already passed from the beginning of the project, if we take more time for the draft, people, who are facing discrimination, will have to suffer more,” he said at a view exchange meeting on preparing recommendation for enacting law against discrimination at the Judicial Administration Training Institution in the capital.

The draft says the High Court Rules, 1971 shall not be applicable in conducting the cases of discrimination end appeals. In this regard, Khairul said the provision was kept for speedy disposal of the cases.

He said as a result of the stay order of the High Court, about nine lakh criminal cases have fallen idle in magistrate courts for which justice seekers suffered.

The former chief Justice urged the present chief justice to issue directions to the benches concerned on the matter so that backlog of cases could be decreased. 

Law Minister Anisul Huq said more discussions were needed before enactment of the law for ending discrimination.
