Bangladesh Supreme Court Issues Contempt Rule on Senior Civil Servants


The Supreme Court on Monday issued a contempt rule against four secretaries including the principal secretary to the prime minister of Bangladesh for not complying with its 12-point directive on separation of the judiciary from the executive.

The full bench of the Appellate Division headed by Chief Justice Syed JR Mudassir Husain also asked the four top bureaucrats to explain within three weeks why contempt proceedings should not be brought against them.

The bureaucrats issued with the contempt rule are Principal Secretary to the Prime Minister Kamal Uddin Siddiqui, Law Secretary Alauddin Sarder, Establishment Secretary Mahbubur Rahman and Finance Secretary Siddiqur Rahman.

Dr Kamal Hossain, who has been moving the case as an intervener, told reporters that it is the constitutional responsibility of the highest court to ensure its orders are executed and to take action against those defying or ignoring the directives.
