Govt to seek review over 16th amendment - National
Law Affairs Minister Anisul Huq

Dhaka: Law Minister Anisul Huq on Thursday said the government will file a review petition with the Supreme Court against its verdict that upheld the scrapping of 16th amendment of the constitution.

The law minister came up with the assertion while talking to reporters after a programme held in a Dhaka hotel.

The government received the certified copy of the SC verdict, the newsmen were told.

The 16th amendment of the constitution had empowered the parliament to remove the Supreme Court judges for incapacity or misconduct, what was scrapped by the High Court.

In response to a question, the law minister said Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha may go abroad tomorrow (Friday) and he will travel to Australia, Canada, USA and UK during his leave.

The law minister urged all not to do politics with the Chief Justice’s leave.
