Many court officials involved in graft: AG

STAFF REPORTER

Attorney general (AG) Mahbubye Alam yesterday alleged that a large number of court officials and employees are ‘involved in corruption’. “If this situation continues, the judiciary will collapse and it will be difficult for those who are honest to maintain their honesty,” he said.

Alam was speaking at the felicitation ceremony of the newly appointed Chief Justice, Syed Mahmud Hossain, at court number-1 of the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court (SC).

The authorities concerned are conducting investigation against at least 24 court officials for various corruption charges against them, according to SC sources. Alam said that some High Court (HC) judges are far from punctual—they do not come on time and also leave the court early. Some recenrly filed cases are being disposed of, while some others have been left pending for years as they are not on top of the cause list for hearing, he noted. He also alleged that HC judges have deliberately kept pending the verdict in some cases even after the completion of hearing, while they delivered verdict quickly in other cases.

He expressed surprised as to how some particular courts have become the courts of particular lawyers. He said many litigants are in touch with the judges’ wives and children, who also are lawyers, thinking that they can win if their cases are moved by those lawyers. “It’s not new that the children and relatives of some judges are also in the legal profession. But such unfair practice was not witnessed earlier,” he added.
