Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain inaugurated the ‘Supreme Court cause-list app’ in the afternoon. Law Minister Anisul Huq joined the event through a video conference.
“There’s no alternative to acquiring digital technology skills to prepare for the future in line with the IT revolution,” the chief justice said.
This app will help judges, lawyers, court officials and employees and people seeking justice to easily find out the latest status of cases and their details, he said.
Law Minister Huq said the work to digitalise Bangladesh is going on in full swing and the app proves that the judiciary is not lagging behind.
“We’ve set an example and it’ll help accelerate the success of the judiciary,” he said.
Attorney General AM Amin Uddin, who was also present there, said the app is an opportunity to bring the services to the doorsteps of the people seeking justice.
