Farewell reception to the second woman Justice of the Appellate Division,The Attorney General’s Office and the Supreme Court Lawyers’ Association gave Zinat Ara.
- The farewell reception was presented in the Chief Justice’s court on Thursday (March 12). Attorney General Mahbubey Alam and the president of the Lawyers Association AM Amin Uddin spoke on behalf of the Attorney General’s Office.
In response to the farewell reception, Justice Zinat Ara said, “Today I am retiring at the end of my 5-year career.” The last few months seemed like a quick time to release myself. But today, despite the relief of liberation, how do I deny the depression that is working to leave everyone out of the world?
About his career experience, Justice Jinat Ara said, “I was the first to appear as a woman muncef in Dhaka court. I had a strange experience since there was no female judge in Dhaka before me. Hundreds of people came to see me in court every day. Whenever anyone came to the old Dhaka, I would look at the court whenever I got a chance. In such a case, the court had to take measures to reduce the crowd in order to properly handle the proceedings.
- He further said that on April 27, I was sworn in as a temporary judge in the High Court Division. My mind was filled with depression that day. My father passed away on January 26, just three months ago. I’ve been hearing for a long time that I’m being a judge. My father looked forward to seeing me as a judge. But could not see. The father of Justice Zinat Arah, Hafez Mohammad Rais Uddin Siddiqui, was the district and sessions judge.
Justice Zinat Ara believes the responsibility for establishing justice falls on judges and lawyers alike. To the lawyers, he said that without the full cooperation of the lawyers, it is not possible to handle justice properly and properly. The role of lawyers is crucial for the judges of all subordinate courts, including the Supreme Court of the country, to conduct the trial independently. You have to cooperate fully to maintain the independence of the judiciary. People need to help the people irrespective of their opinion. Hopefully, you will try to ensure the justice of the people, regardless of their opinion. Do not let the people’s confidence in the judiciary be in jeopardy; the image of the judiciary should remain vigilant, lawyers will always be vigilant. Remember, it is our responsibility to protect the independence of the judiciary. ”
The judiciary will have 5 years to complete on March 7. But he was given a farewell reception on Thursday as he was on vacation.
