Transport workers observing strike without understanding law: Anisul

DHAKA Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs

Minister Anisul Huq today said transport workers are perhaps observing

countrywide strike without understanding the new road transport act.

The new law in one hand will come handy in lowering the number of road

mishaps while it will also be helpful for the drivers if they run buses

appropriately. There is no such provision in the act which can leave them

(drivers) in jeopardy without committing any mistakes, he said.

The law minister said these while talking to newsmen after inaugurating

the second orientation course for newly-joined judges of Women and Children

Repression Prevention Tribunals at Judicial Administration Training Institute

(JATI) here in the capital.

Presided over by JATI Director General Justice Khondker Musa Khaled, the

function was also addressed by Law Secretary Abu Saleh Sheikh Md Zahirul

Haque.

While replying a question on recent remarks of Jatiya Oikyafront leader Dr

Kamal Hossain, the law minister said the Awami League government never

violated constitution, saying, in spite of this, if I ever have to appear

before court for violating the constitution, I will do that.

Talking about Digital Security Act, Anisul Huq said, This act was not

formulated to violate freedom of media, speech or other form of freedom,

it is only meant to ensure cyber security.
