For a fairer system

Jul 19, 2017
What we need is a justice system that is efficient and caters to each individual's rights
 
Justice should be swift, not necessarily mobile.
 
Mobile courts in Bangladesh have functioned with little regard for the rights of citizens and, as such, we welcome the High Court’s deadline of two weeks for them to stop operating.
 
When it comes to justice, our system often falls short, by not only ignoring the basic rights of the people, but by handing out punishments which were unfair.
 
No wonder most of the sentences were overturned once they went to court.
 
Of course, mobile courts were quicker; but the fact remains that what we need is a justice system that is efficient and caters to each individual’s rights, not archaic mobile courts which do little to alleviate the problem.
