AVCB inter-ministerial meeting held

Soon after the passing of 'Village Court (Amendment) Act in 2013 the demand for making pertinent rules started surfacing as most of the provisions of VC Rules 1976 do not correspond with the thrust of the amended VC Act. To align those rules with the existing Village Courts Act, Activating Village Courts in Bangladesh (AVCB) project has recently drafted Village Courts Rules, 2014. On 10 September 2014 Local Government Division (LGD) organized an inter-ministerial meeting at the LGD conference room to have a critical discussion and review of that document.

Monzur Hossain, Senior Secretary of Local Government Division presided over the meeting while Md. Mizanur Rahman, Deputy Secretary, Ministry of Home Affairs, Ms. Zahan Ara Begum, Deputy Secretary, Ministry of Women and Children Affairs, Mohammad Kamrul Hassan, Senior Assistant Secretary, Cabinet Division, Atikur Rahman Jamali, Senior Assistant Secretary, Ministry of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs, Sheikh Humayan Kabir, Deputy Solicitor, Law and Justice Department, Parimal Kumar Deb, Deputy Secretary (Law), Local Government Division participated in the discussion. The AVCB Project Manager Sarder M Asaduzzaman also took part in the discussions and Abu Tahir Muhammad, Deputy Secretary of LGD gave a presentation on the issue. Mr. KM Mozammel Hoq, Additional Secretary of LGD and NPD of AVCB Project facilitated the overall discussion process.

The meeting discussed critical issues of making relevant rules on Pre-Trial procedure, provision of certificate cases in case of failure in realizing compensation awarded by village courts, review VC matters by the superior courts, visiting the place of occurrence for ensuring the evidential aspect of the village courts cases etc.
