Public prosecutors, other lawyers to be trained on virtual court functions

Public prosecutors, government pleaders and individual lawyers across the country will be provided training in order to increase their competence in moving cases before the courts through a virtual system.

The law ministry has arranged the training programme from July 12 to August 24 through video conference in association with German Development Organisation.

Local and foreign experts will conduct the training programme, Public Relations Officer of the law ministry Md Rezaul Karim told The Daily Star.

Law Minister Anisul Huq will inaugurate the function on July 12, after which lawyers including public prosecutors and government pleaders from Brahmanbaria and Narsingdi will receive the training.

Lawyers from other districts will gradually be given training on the same issue, a law ministry press release said today.

The subordinate courts virtually started functions on May 11 under the Information Technology Usage Ordinance by the Court, 2020 in order to avoid spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

The parliament on July 8 passed a bill in order to convert the ordinance into a permanent law.
