Judges’ code of conduct

SC gives one more week for issuing gazette notification

STAFF REPORTER

The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court, yesterday, granted the government an extension till December 10, to issue gazette notification on lower court judges’ conduct rules. A five-member Appellate Division bench, led by acting Chief Justice Abdul Wahhab Miah, passed the order, following a fresh time plea filed by Attorney General Mahbubey Alam, over the matter. The apex court also set December 10 as the date for the next hearing on the matter.

The apex court came up with the order in the wake of law minister Anisul Huq's recent remarks, saying the gazette would be published very soon as the draft of the gazette has already been sent to President's office.

On November 30, Law Minister Anisul Huq said his ministry had sent the draft of the gazette to the Prime Minister’s Office. Once the PM gives consent to the draft, it will be sent to President’s office, said the minister. After the President’s approval, the law ministry will issue the much-awaited gazette notification, he added.

Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha, who was very much vocal about the gazette, left country for Australia on October 13, taking leave on health ground. He later sent his resignation letter.

After that, the matter came into discussion in court twice, and the apex court set yesterday as the date for publishing the gazette.

On November 16, Anisul Huq, after a meeting with acting Chief Justice Abdul Wahhab Miah, said the gazette notification would be issued before December 3, if the President permits.

On November 5, the apex court extended time for the government up to December 3, to publish the gazette notification. With this, the Appellate Division extended time for at least 30 times in the last one year. The lower judiciary was officially separated in November 2007, but the disciplinary rules for lower court judges are yet to be formulated.

On December 2, 1999, the Supreme Court in the Masdar Hossain case issued a seven-point directive, including formulating separate disciplinary rules, for the lower court judges.
