The High Court on Monday stayed operation of the gazette notification of Chittagong University canceling LLB certificate of Justice Faisal Mahmud Faizee for tampering with his exam results.
Passing the stay order, the High Court issued rule upon the Chittagong University authorities to explain why their action in canceling the certificate of Faizee, a controversial judge of the High Court, should not be declared "illegal". The court asked the varsity authorities to produce the tabulation sheet of Faizee's examination marks during the next hearing.
The court order came following a writ petition filed by Justice Faizee challenging legality of the Chittagong University action against him. Faizee in his writ petition challenged the validity of the CU extraordinary syndicate meeting's decision that cancelled his LLB certificate, along with a big lot of others, for "tampering" with his examination results and subsequent gazette notification in this regard.
