Jatiya Sangsad (JS) Speaker Dr Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury said the government under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is committed to ensure the establishment of rule of laws, reports BSS. ‘The remarkable trial of murderers of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and war criminals proves that Bangladesh does not have the practice of injustice culture,’ she said addressing the ‘Annual Feast- 2019’ as the chief guest.

Chattogram District Lawyers Association organised the event at Chattogram Lawyers Auditorium on Saturday, said a press release. ‘The government believes that establishment of rule of law is a must to materialise the dream of Bangabandhu’s ‘Sonar Bangla’, a hunger, poverty and discrimination free Bangladesh’, she added.

Dr Shirin also called for the unity among the lawyers saying, ‘There is no substitute for unity of lawyers in democratic progress by upholding our constitution, gifted by Bangabandhu,’ added the release. Mentioning that the number of female lawyers is increasing rapidly, the JS Speaker also laid emphasise on creating a friendly and positive work environment for woman lawyers.

She urged the lawyers to cooperate with the government to mark the occasion of Mujib Year.
