No compromise over independence of judiciary: CJ
Chief Justice SK Sinha yesterday asserted that there will be no compromise when it comes to the independence of the judiciary and the rule of law.
He said this while addressing a views-exchange meeting in 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, while the justice seekers have been suffering due to absence of witnesses during hearings.
He called on the police and public prosecutors to play their due role in ensuring the witnesses' presence.
Observing that the greatness of a nation is adjudged not by its financial assets, but by the rule of law, which he said must be established to ensure the real progress.
