Govt scrutinising 16th amendment verdict: Anisul
Law Minister Anisul Huq on Thursday said the government is scutinising the Supreme Court verdict that scrapped the 16th amendment to the Constitution for its next course of action.
“As the government is not happy with the verdict, so we’re currently scrutinising the full verdict of the Supreme Court to reach a decision whether we’ll file any review petition or not,” he said.
Anisul was addressing a press conference at his ministry to voice his formal reaction to the Supreme Court verdict on the 16th amendment to the Constitution.
“Although we’ve disagreement with the verdict, but I have respect for the verdict delivered by the Supreme Court,” Huq said.
He said the reasons for which the Supreme Court scrapped the 16th amendment to the constitution are not acceptable to the government.
“We’ll take initiatives to expunge the objectionable and irrelevant statements made in the judgment of the Chief Justice.”
