Ensure quick disposal of cases: President

President Abdul Hamid on Saturday said judges have to ensure quick disposal of cases in an impartial manner to fortify people's confidence on the judiciary to overcome problems of delay in trial process and backlog of cases, reports UNB. "The court is the last dependable place for people...it is expected that the judges will conduct their tasks impartially to ease sufferings to the litigants and give priority to the welfare of the country and its people," the President said while addressing the inaugural session of National Judicial Conference 2017 at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre (BICC) here.

He also urged the judges to pronounce the judgment or pass any order after hearing of cases or announce brief verdict or pass the order within the reasonable timeframe for increasing the confidence on an effective judiciary.

"Dilly-dally process in pronouncing case's verdict or passing any order won't be accepted. If so happens, the judge concerned must take the responsibility individually", the President said. He stressed the need for maintaining realistic balance between number of judges and cases, appointing judges in all vacant posts and ensuring necessary courtrooms for accelerating desired speed of the judicial activities.
