Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Saturday said the government is thinking about introducing a virtual court in the country.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Saturday said the government is thinking about introducing a virtual court in the country.

“The incumbent government is planning to introduce virtual court.” She said.

The premier was speaking at the National Judicial Conference-2019 with the theme of ‘Justice for Peace and Development’ held at Dhaka’s Bangabandhu International Conference Centre in the city.

She said it will reduce the risk and hassle to bring and take back notorious criminals from jail as there is a risk that they might be snatched midway.

Sheikh Hasina said judges, being accountable to the country, its people and the Constitution, will help ensure the rule of law and justice using their merit and creativity.

Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain presided over the inaugural programme where Law Minister Anisul Huq spoke as special guest. Law and Justice Division Secretary Md Golam Sarwar also spoke there while 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 are attending the function.

Sheikh Hasina said she thinks parliament, judiciary and executive are very much essential while running the state.

She added: “These three organs will operate with their laws and policies. Again, there should be coordination among these three organs, which will advance the country toward peace and development.”
