Case backlog, transparency to dominate judicial confce

Focusing on reducing the backlog of cases and making the judiciary more transparent, the Supreme Court (SC) authorities are going to organise the National Judicial Conference, which will be held at the Bangabandhu International Conference Centre on December 7.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will attend the gala event as chief guest for the first time since its inception in 2015. Law minister Anisul Huq and some other ministers and secretaries will be present.

Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain will preside over the first session of the conference.

The main objective of the assembly is to find ways of reducing the backlog of cases, strengthening the judicial administration, bringing the whole judiciary under the digital system and making the judiciary more transparent.

Officials concerned said participants would discuss the development of the judiciary, possible ways to have a corruption-free judiciary as well as ensuring the smooth functioning of the judiciary.

After the conference, the authorities concerned will inform all ministries and people about the existing problems and prospects of the judiciary, sources said.

Almost all preparations have been completed to make the conference successful. About 2,500 trial court, High Court and Appellate Division judges and other distinguished guests will attend the conference.

All officials of the judiciary will give their opinion at the conference on several issues, especially on the huge number of cases pending before trial courts and higher courts.

More than 35 lakh cases are pending before the courts for disposal, according to the sources.

According to a study report of the Supreme Court, 35,98,263 cases were pending before the courts till June 30, while 3,76,778 were disposed of between April 1 and June 30.
