Fakhrul’s case not in SC cause list: CJ asks registrar of see why


Chief Justice Surendra Kumar yesterday asked the Registrar General of the Supreme Court to investigate the reason why the matter of BNP acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir did not come in the cause list for hearing.
On Monday, the five-member bench of the Appellate Division asked BNP leader to submit an affidavit by Tuesday on the reported controversial remark he recently made on the judiciary.
But, the matter did not come in the yesterday’s cause list of the apex court for hearing.
While the apex court started the day’s proceedings the Chief Justice summoned the high officials of the apex court including Registrar General Syed Aminul Islam for explaining their position over the missing of Fakhrul’s matter.
The Chief Justice asked the Registrar General to investigate the matter as the officials have failed to give satisfactory answer to the chief justice over the matter.
After coming out from the court, attorney general Mahbubey Alam said that the apex court asked the Registrar General to conduct an investigation over the matter.
Later, Registrar General Syed Aminul Islam told reporters that the chief justice asked him to conduct an investigation to find out the reason in missing the Fakhrul’s matter in the daily cause list. But, I cannot say anything before getting the order of the apex court in this regard, he added.
Earlier on February 18, the apex court asked Fakhrul to explain his comments made against the judiciary at a party meeting in Sylhet on February 7.
According to media reports, the BNP leader had said that the government was trying to control the judiciary. He had gone on to say that there was no democracy and no independent judiciary in the country.
The apex court sought the explanation by February 22, while hearing on three bail petitions filed by Fakhrul in cases related to arson and vandalism him.
The next hearing on the pleas is on February 23 (today). On November 24, 2015, the High Court (HC) had granted bail for three months to Fakhrul Islam Alamgir in the three cases. The government then challenged the HC order in the apex court on November 26.
However, the SC upheld the lower court’s order on November 30.
On the same day, Fakhrul Islam Alamgir was released from Part-2 of Kashimpur Central Jail after the apex court’s bail order reached the prison authorities. – Staff Reporter
