The present building won’t sustain for more than 5-6 years. One day we’ll have to deliver justice sitting in an open space if the [proposed] 20-storey annex building is not constructed soon. Honourable minister, how the judiciary will continue?” he asked.Addressing the programme, Anisul Huq said, “Justice Nazmun Ara Sultana is part of history of the country and its judiciary. Following her footsteps, many women have taken up this profession. Now there are 24 percent female judges in the country.”last_img
