Pns: Law Minister Anisul Huq on Thursday said the government is scutinising the Supreme Court verdict that scrapped the 16th amendment to the Constitution for its next course of action.

“As the government is not happy with the verdict, so we’re currently scrutinising the full verdict of the Supreme Court to reach a decision whether we’ll file any review petition or not,” he said. Anisul was addressing a press conference at his ministry to voice his formal reaction to the Supreme Court verdict on the 16th amendment to the Constitution.

On August 1 last, the Supreme Court released the full text of its verdict upholding the High Court verdict that declared illegal the 16th Amendment to the Constitution establishing Parliament's authority to remove Supreme Court judges.
