The Parliament passed the Special Security Force (SSF) Bill 2021 on Tuesday to provide family members of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman with foolproof security.

Liberation War Affairs Minister AKM Mozammel Huq, who is in charge of the Prime Minister's Office in parliament, moved the Bill and it was passed by voice vote, reports UNB.

The proposed law was brought up as the existing law “the Special Security Force Ordinance, 1986” was void following a verdict of the higher court.

The new law was drafted revising the existing one. Only one thing was included here, which is providing security to the family members of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, and very important persons.

Bangabandhu’s family members mean his two daughters, grandchildren, and in some cases, spouses or issues of the grandchildren.

The very important persons defined by the government through gazettes, heads of the foreign states or governments will be given security under the draft law.

In the case of providing security to the Bangabandhu’s family members, the Special Security Force Bill, 2021 will be given priority no matter whatever is there in the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman's Family Members Security Act, 2009.
