Chief Justice ABM Khairul Haque yesterday (on March 5) expressed dissatisfaction over the standard of verdicts delivered by judges in different cases, saying those lack sufficient legal information and data.
The judges have to be studious to learn how to use the law points and legal grounds in their judgements to make those correct and credible, he observed.
He was speaking as chief guest at a meeting hosted to accord reception to Justice Nazmun Ara Sultana, recently appointed first woman judge of the Appellate Division.
Bangladesh Women Judges' Association organised the event at the Judicial Administration Training Institute in the capital.
Appreciating the judgements of Justice Nazmun Ara Sultana, the chief justice said she has come this far by her own quality and competence.
Voicing disappointment over suicide incidents of girls and women in rural areas, Justice Khairul said the judges, particularly women judges, have to take this matter seriously to prevent such occurrences.
Justice Nazmun Ara said she has been discharging her duties remaining above any fear, emotion and sentiment to establish justice in the society. She urged all her colleagues to follow the same.
A number of judges of the Appellate and High Court Divisions were present on the occasion.
