Committee is working to find corrupt in Judiciary: CJ

Chief Justice ABM Khairul Haque on Saturday said the committee, formed to investigate into the TIB household survey report, is working to find out the corrupt persons in the judiciary.

The TIB report, published recently, showed the judiciary as top corrupt sector in the country. After publishing the report, the Supreme Court asked TIB to give the report's documents. TIB top officials did so, met with the Judges and clarified different points of the report.

The Chief Justice was addressing as the chief guest a cover unveiling ceremony of a book titled "Towards justice delivery system for children in Bangladesh", written by High Court Division's Justice Md Imman Ali, at the Judicial Administration Training Institute (JATI) in the city.

Law Minister Barrister Shafique Ahmed was the special guest at the function, which was attended, among others, by Advocate Abdul Baset Majumder, vice president of the Bar Council, Advocate Dr Shahden Malik and Supreme Court Registrar Md Ashraful Islam.

Chief justice ABM Khairul Haque said none of the Legislature, the Executive and the Judiciary is accountable to other, rather all these are complementary each other.

The judges' accountability is to the people of the country and the creator, the CJ said, adding that logics of the judgments what the judges write are rest behind those judgments.

"People are the supreme authority, as the Constitution states. They are the sources of all power and the main pillars of any state," said the Chief Justice.

Recently, a debate over accountability of the judiciary was raised and the  parliamentary standing committee on law posed a query-- to whom the judiciary is accountable?

The Chief Justice said the children don't born as criminals, rather the situations in sometimes compelled them to be criminals.

Law Minister Barrister Shafique Ahmed said all the concerned persons have to be well informed about the existing children rules and policy; all have to be more conscious so that the children don't face injustice.
