A Supreme Court lawyer today sent a legal notice to Law Commission Chairman ABM Khairul Haque urging him to withdraw his comments about the Supreme Court judgment on 16th amendment to the constitution.
Advocate BM Sultan Mahmud issued the notice saying that he will take legal steps against Khairul Haque if he does not withdraw his comments and apologise to the people within 24 hours.
In his notice, Sultan said that Justice Khairul Haque on August 9 at a press briefing commented on the issues which are out of “judicial norms and values”.
“At the briefing, you addressed the honorable Chief Justice of Bangladesh Mr Surendra Kumar Sinha as headmaster and other judges of the Supreme Court as students and you also told at the briefing that whether other judges are bound to listen to you (honorable chief justice of Bangladesh) which shocked me a lot,’’ he said in the notice.
Sultan Mahmud also said Law Commission is an organisation made by the government and Justice Khairul Haque is a government servant as the chairman of the commission. “You (Khairul Haque) do not have any right to comment on any judgment and irrespective of any matter passed by the Supreme Court of Bangladesh,” he said in the notice.
