Symposium on budgetary allocationmasud
Law and Justice’ plays an imperative role in economy. Likewise, development is often equated with economic factors only. However, law and justice contribute greatly to influence the performance of these economic factors and thereby to ensure social and economic justice in any society.
Since development of a country contributes towards an effective system of law and justice and as such, there exists in independent relationship between ‘law and justice’ and development, it is vital to see if this Ministry of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs is losing its comparative importance within the Public Order and Safety category of the Government.
To give appropriate insight to this matter, two papers have been presented in a symposium organised by Bangladesh Institute of Law and International Affairs (BILIA) on Saturday, May 14th. The subject of this symposium was “Budgetary Allocation for Ministry of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs”, where the speakers were Dr. Tureen Afroz, Prosecutor at International Crimes Tribunal of Bangladesh and Professor of the Department of Law at East West University and Mr. Md Mustakimur Rahman, Lecturer at Department of Law at the Notre Dame University, Bangladesh. The event was hosted by Dr. Shahdeen Malik, Honorary Director of BILIA and chaired by Barrister M. Amirul Islam, Chairman of BILIA. Mr. Anisul Huq, MP, Hon’ble Minister, Ministry of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs, was the Chief Guest at the symposium.
