Habib Siddiqui comments that the judicial system in Bangladesh is discouraging law-abiding citizens to seek justice. He says: “when the system conspires against its law-abiding citizens, I guess very little people could do to stop criminals.”

    Hundreds and thousands of Suits / Litigations are pending in Different Courts of Bangladesh due to illegal occupation of land ignoring documents and title right by miscreants.
    .
    The officials of Land Survey Department, Settlement Office and their Subordinate Office are also responsible for many of the litigations as in many cases they prepare records & parcha and other related records of land in the name of other people or concern ignoring the deed & title right., depriving the actual land owner willfully and deliberately.
    Such type of malpractices of officials of Land Survey Department, Settlement Offices including their subordinate offices up to uphajila level are known to all corner. .
    And shall continue as the officials of the above organizations can not be made responsible nor they can be taken to the court for loss and damages of owner of land as there exist no law since 200- year back of British Period / colonial period to till date.

    Correction of records, parcha & related documents of concerned lands at present are very much complicated, lengthy and expensive system.
    As a result majority of effected owner of the land can not efforts & ultimately they loss the legal right of ownerships of his land.
    Due to which the illegal / unauthorized occupier of land changes the faces or position of the lands by applying force depriving the actual owner. for all

    Government may come forward to take immediate steps to ensure accountability at all stages of land survey department including settlement office and their subordinate offices against manipulation and malpractices during land survey, preparation of records , parch including area map in the name of force full occupier of land or other organizations intentionally & willfully .
    Experts opinions are that, application of TORT LAW also can help the process of accountability & prevent existing malpractices by officials to many extents

    TORT LAW also protect poor people becoming more and more poor due to repression, oppression
    It will be highly appreciated if you kindly circulate the above to all level for creation of awareness among the people, international community as well as patriot political worker. Leader or intellectual group, & policy maker.
