Abstract

EFFECTIVE IMPLEMENTATION of fundamental rights inevitably depends on the due process of law, good governance, an independent and strong judiciary, efficient law enforcing agencies, and above all, on the honest commitment of the government. 1 Transparent and accountable administration by state organs with a delicate balance of power is widely believed to provide and preserve rights. Quite consistent with this contention and to avoid excessive concentration of power on a single branch of the government, the original Constitution of Bangladesh, 1972 was premised on the principle of separation of powers between the three organs of the state: the legislature, the judiciary and the executive.
