Everyone not angels in Judiciary: as frankly says Chief Justice



Corruption prevails everywhere across the country and judiciary is nothing different, Chief Justice SK Sinha said today.

When there is corruption at all layers across the country, judiciary is not a separate island where there is no corruption and everyone here is an angel, the chief Justice said.

He was speaking at a launching programme of two books written by Law Commission member Prof Shah Alam. The programme was held at Nabab Nawab Ali Chowdhury Senate Bhaban of Dhaka University.

The chief justice said there are still some anomalies in the judiciary, but not more than five to ten percent. “We have to accept it and continue to work for the people in such circumstances.”

If the laws are not reformed, the judiciary department will tumble, he warned.

Criticising the lawmakers, the chief justice said previously there used to be a lot of discussion on laws in the parliament but the situation is not same now. That is the reason why presently laws have flaws, he added.

National Human Rights Commission chairman Mizanur Rahman chaired the occasion.
