Justice Minister Anisul Huq said today it was “unfortunate” to ban the United States from barring seven former and current senior Rab officials from entering that country.

The claim on which the United States issued the restrictions is “imaginary”, he said.

The Minister of Justice responded to journalists’ questions after attending as the main guest a meeting on the occasion of the inauguration of the 26th Judicial Administration Training Course for District and Sessional Judges and metropolitan session judges in Dhaka.

The Judicial Administration Training Institute (JATI) organized the program in its auditorium under the chairmanship of its Director General, Judge Bazmun Ara Sultana. Legal Secretary Md Golam Sarwar also spoke on the occasion.

Responding to another question, Anisul Huq told reporters that there was no extrajudicial execution in Bangladesh.

Regarding BNP President Khaleda Zia’s request for permission to seek treatment abroad, Anisul Huq said, “Wait and see.

Responding to another question, the justice minister said a new chief justice will be appointed when necessary. “I don’t know who will be the next chief justice,” he said.

Current Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain will retire on December 31.
