16th amendment: Law Minister’s press conference begins

Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Anisul Huq has called a press conference to give his formal reaction about the verdict on 16th Amendment to the Constitution today.

The apex court on July 3 upheld a previous High Court verdict that declared illegal the 16th amendment, which had empowered the parliament to remove its judges for incapacity or misconduct.

The press conference will be held at the conference room of the ministry at 12 noon on the day.

On August 1, the SC released the 799-page text of the verdict after its six judges including Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha signed it.
