15 May,2017



Dhaka, BdChronicle:

The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court on Monday gave two weeks more to the government to issue a gazette notification on the disciplinary and conduct rules for lower court judges.

The full member bench of the Appellate Division, led by Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha, passed the order following a time-petition filed by Attorney General Mahbubey Alam.

Earlier, on May 8, the SC gave one more week to issue the gazette.

On April 4, the SC extended time up to May 8 in this connection.

On March 14, it extended the time by two weeks for issuing the gazette. Before that, the Court, on February 27, gave the government two weeks to publish the gazette as it failed to publish it in time.

The court, on February 5, ordered the authorities concerned to issue the gazette notification by February 12. On November 24, 2016, it gave the government one week to publish the gazette notification.

The lower judiciary was officially separated in November 2007 but the disciplinary rules for lower court judges are yet to be formulated.
