Law and Information Adviser Barrister Mainul Hosein Friday said the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) system would help settle disputes shortly and cheaply through understanding between the groups.
He said the ADR process would help settle disputes through consensual method as no side would bear any grade for not winning as this method is chosen voluntary by the parties. The adviser said this after a National Consultation on Alternative Dispute Resolution at a local hotel in the city.
The adviser addressed the consultation as the chief guest. The Ministry of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs and Bangladesh Legal Reform Project, funded by the Canadian government, jointly organized the consultation. Chairman of the Law Commission and former chief justice of Bangladesh Justice Mustafa Kamal and Canadian High Commissioner to Bangladesh Barbara Richardson addressed the function as special guests.
The Law Adviser also reminded every one that it was imperative on the part of the government to separate judiciary from the executive.
