PV Desk : Terming terrorism as a global phenomena, Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Anisul Huq called for a unified approach to combat the scourge.
“We should stress the need for pre-emptive action, educating people and engaging community and religious leaders to deplore terrorist activities,” he told a three-day meeting of the Commonwealth Law Ministers in Nassau, the Bahamas.
Law ministers and attorneys-general from all regions of the Commonwealth met from October 16-19 in Nassau, the Bahamas, for the Commonwealth Law Ministers Meeting (CLMM).
The theme of this year’s meeting, ‘Strengthening the rule of law through technology’, reflects how new technologies have shaped all facets in the world, including law and access to justice. Commonwealth law ministers are discussing a wide range of issues, including strengthening of legal frameworks for sustainable development, climate change, governance and promoting peace and security.
Speaking on the occasion, Anisul Huq also mentioned, “Apart from the anti-terrorism and anti-money Laundering acts, the Bangladesh government is exploring ways on how to bring those responsible for abusing ICT to spread extremist venom.”
