President assents to 16th Constitution Amendment Bill

DHAKA, Sept 22, 2014 (BSS) - President Abul Hamid assented to four bills, including The Constitution (Sixteenth Amendment) Bill, 2014, passed by the 10th Jatiya Sangsad in its third session.

The other three bills are: The Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) Bill, 2014, The Bangladesh Atomic Energy Control (Amendment) Bill, 2014 and The Investment Corporation of Bangladesh (ICB) Bill, 2014, said a parliament secretariat press release today.

On September 17, the Jatiya Sangsad unanimously passed the much-talked "The Constitution (Sixteenth Amendment) Bill, 2014" restoring the parliament's power to remove Supreme Court judges for their 'misconduct or incapacity'.

The House passed the bill by 327-0 votes as per recommendation of the parliamentary standing committee concerned.

Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Anisul Haque piloted the bill for its passage saying the constitution amendment bill was aimed at restoring the dignity of the judiciary and ensuring accountability of the higher court judges.
