Full-fledged National HR Commission by this month
Staff Correspondent

The government will constitute a full-fledged national human rights commission (NHRC) through appointing a new chairman and six members within this month, Law Minister Shafique Ahmed said yesterday.

As per provision of the law concerned, the NHRC will be comprised of a chairman, one permanent member and five non-permanent members, the minister said.

“I have already talked to the Speaker of Jatiya Sangsad, who is the chief of the NHRC selection committee, about appointment of its chairman and members.”

Shafique said this while talking to newsmen after a meeting with Swedish Ambassador Britt Hagstrom at his Secretariat office.

The law minister said the NHRC's incumbent chairman Justice Amirul Kabir Chowdhury will go into retirement on June 20, and its two members (Prof Niru Kumar Chakma and Munira Khan) have already retired.

So, all the posts of chairman and members of NHRC will become vacant after June 20, the minister said, adding that the selection committee would soon hold a meeting to select the chairman and members of the commission.

The government would appoint an ombudsman to probe the allegations against any governmental, semi-governmental or statutory body, Shafique said.

The government is now looking for a suitable person for the post, he added.

He also said that Tk 10 crore would be allocated in the next budget for the expenditure of holding the trial for crimes against humanity and war crimes committed during the Liberation War in 1971.

Referring to his recent visit to Uganda, Shafique said all the representatives from the participating countries, who attended the review conference on international criminal court in Kampala, have extended their support to the Bangladesh government for holding the trial.

Replying to a question, he said the investigation into the crimes against humanity has been going on smoothly. The investigators will say when they would submit the charge sheets, he added.
