No compromise over independence of judiciary: CJ


Chief Justice SK Sinha on Thursday asserted that there will be no compromise when it comes to the independence of the judiciary and the rule of law in the country. He came up with the remarks while addressing a views-exchange meeting at Comilla Court Bar Association Auditorium.

“In almost all the countries of the world, there exist some problems between the administration and the judiciary. We also have some problems here,” he added. The Chief Justice also noted that a huge backlog of cases has been created in the country, while the justice seekers have been suffering due to absence of witnesses during hearings. Comilla, UNB News Agency Reported.

He called on the police and public prosecutors to play their due role in ensuring the presence of witnesses. Observing that the greatness of a nation is adjudged not by its financial assets, but by the rule of law, the Chief Justice said the rule of law must be established to ensure the real progress of the country.
