State committed to frame laws to ensure justice for all: CM
Kolkata: Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said on Wednesday that the state government is committed to framing good laws in order to ensure justice for all, on the occasion of International Justice Day.
She highlighted that 19 human rights courts have been set up in the state during the last eight years, since the Trinamool Congress came to power in 2011.
"#InternationalJusticeDay #Bangla Govt is committed to framing good laws for people and ensuring good justice for all. 19 human rights courts have been set up in #Bangla in the last 8 years," Banerjee tweeted.
International Justice Day, also known as World Day for International Justice or Day of International Criminal Justice, is celebrated across the globe as an effort to recognise the strengthening system of international justice.
It may be mentioned that Bengal is the first state to set up such courts. These are located in the district headquarters and special public prosecutors have been appointed for filing the cases.
The district and sessions judges hear the cases in the human rights courts, which are aimed at fast disposal of rights violation cases.
