Govt explores ways to erase parts of verdict,says LM

PV Desk : The government will initiate measures to expunge ‘unacceptable’ parts of the top court verdict over the 16th constitutional amendment, says Law Minister Anisul Huq.

Ten days after the full verdict was published, the minister emerged before the media with the government’s official reaction over the Supreme Court verdict, which took away the parliament’s powers to sack top court judges.

“We decided to move for expunging the unacceptable and offensive statements in verdict,” he said on Thursday, without elaborating on how it would be done.

Huq said the government was ‘aggrieved’ by the top court’s verdict, but was yet to seek a review.
