The high-ups of the judiciary, from now on, will make use of a Local Area Network (LAN) to monitor day-to-day activities like passing of orders or judgments and progress of cases performed by the judges and magistrates of Dhaka courts.
The LAN will help litigants, lawyers and others concerned get information on the daily cause lists of the cases, orders and judgments of any other court being delivered every day.
People concerned, particularly litigants, used to bribe court staff to get such information as those used to be carried out manually, said lawyers.
Chief Justice Md Muzammel Hossain yesterday inaugurated the LAN of Dhaka Court at a programme organised by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) at Jagannath-Shohel Auditorium in Dhaka Judge's Court.
He announced that the Dhaka courts were connected to a centralised data centre at Supreme Court.
“I shall always monitor all the orders and judgments delivered by the magistrates and the judges through the Local Area Network.
“The district judge, metropolitan sessions' judge, chief judicial magistrate and chief metropolitan magistrate will also monitor the performances of their subordinates,” he added.
UNDP Bangladesh funded the Judicial Strengthening Project (JUST), which launched the LAN.
UNDP played a major role in strengthening the forms of judiciary, combating obstacles and budgetary constrains to ensure access to justice in Bangladesh. “It will also help people get justice,” said UNDP Country Director Stefan Priesner.
The reduction of the backlog of cases through this LAN should pay great dividends to average litigants, says a UNDP statement.
Justice Nazmun Ara Sultana and Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain of the Appellate Division and Justice Mohammad Anwarul Haque, Justice Moyeenul Islam Chowdhury and AHM Shamsuddin Choudhury Manik of the High Court Division were present at the function.
They were accompanied by SM Kuddus Zaman, national project director, JUST Project & Special Officer, Supreme Court of Bangladesh, and Dhaka District Judge Md Abdul Majid.
