Nineteen sitting judges of the High Court in Bangladesh
appealed to the Supreme Court against the HC order directing the government to
reappoint 10 judges with seniority.
Chamber Judge MA Matin scheduled July
29 for the hearing of the appeal.
On July 17 this year, the High Court
(HC) declared illegal and unconstitutional the BNP-led government's not
confirming the services of 10 additional HC judges appointed during the rule of
Awami League despite the chief justice's positive recommendations.
The HC also directed the government to
reappoint the 10 judges with seniority within one month.
Zahurul Alam has the details.
