THE parliamentary standing committee on law affairs yesterday agreed in principle to recommend that the House reinstate the executive magistrates’ power to take cognisance of offences, The Daily Star reports.

Now scrutinising a bill to introduce laws on separation of the judiciary, it will come up with its recommendations next Thursday.

Before that, it will consult Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on the matter.

“We are keeping in contact with the prime minister. I have talked to her today. If necessary, the state minister for law will meet and brief her in detail about the outcome of today’s meeting,” Suranjit Sengupta, chairman of the committee, told reporters after a meeting at the Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban in the evening.

Leaders of judicial service, administrative cadres and police associations were present at the three-hour long meeting to air their views.
