Secretariat Correspondent: Law Minister Anisul Huq said there is no bar to make news on the running cases but it won't be allowed for the sub-judice cases, the proceedings of those are halted.
The minister made the comment while talking to reporters after holding a meeting with envoys of several countries and UN and UNDP at his office in the secretariat on Sunday.
"I think the Supreme Court asked not to publish report or opinion about the sub judice cases or the proceedings of trials are not running," Anisul said.
"It doesn't seem to me that the court asked not to make report about the running cases. You can write. There is no bar to make report on the running cases." the law minister added.
"I would like to make the matter clear that reports and opinions have to be separated and should be treated separately too," Anisul Huq added.
However, the minister gave a suggestion to the reporters that they should seek clear observation from the Appellate Division in this regard.
