Supreme Court will set a time frame on Wednesday for processing the president's
reference seeking a directive on the BDR mutiny trial, the attorney general
said on Tuesday.
After meeting the chief justice on Tuesday, attorney general Mahbubey Alam
said, "I received a letter from the Supreme Court registrar by order of
the chief justice asking me to be present in the Supreme Court Appellate
Division on Wednesday at 9:30am."
"The court will determine the legal process of resolving the reference
forwarded by the president as per Article 106 of the Constitution."
"The court will decide which lawyers will act as the amici curiae (friends
of the court) in this reference. The hearing date will also be fixed."
The court will give the amici curae copies of the reference, hear their
statements and then give its order."
On whether all 11 judges of the Appellate Division will hear the reference, the
attorney general said, "If all the judges are present in the Appellate
Division at the time, they will all take part in the hearing, or a full bench
comprising the majority of judges will hear it."
