HC rules for formulating sentencing guideline

  DHAKA, Sept 19, 2021 (BSS) - The High Court (HC) today issued a rule asking
authorities concerned to explain as to why it shall not pass an order to
formulate a guideline or policy to ensure identical and consistent
sentencing.  

  A High Court division bench comprising Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice
Md Mostafizur Rahman passed the order after holding hearing a writ filed in
this regard.  

  Supreme Court lawyer Advocate Mohammad Shishir Manir filed the writ and
moved it before the court. The petitioner said the absence of such guideline
may lead the judges to come up with inconsistent and indecisive sentencing,
violating the articles 27, 31, and 32 of the constitution.  

  Legislative and Parliamentary Affairs Division Secretary, Law and Justice
Division Secretary and Law Commission Chairman were made respondents in the
writ.  

  They were asked to reply within four weeks.
