Supreme Court to set time frame on BDR reference says Attorney General


The 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."
