>19 sitting judges oppose HC rule

>NINETEEN judges of the High Court (HC) yesterday filed an application with the Supreme Court (SC) against the HC judgment that directed the government to reappoint with seniority 10 additional judges not confirmed during the BNP-Jamaat coalition government’s rule. (Full article)
Endorsing the application, Chamber Judge of the Appellate Division Justice MA Matin permitted the petitioners to file a regular petition for leave to appeal and fixed tomorrow for its hearing before the full bench of the Appellate Division.
Petitioners’ counsel advocate TH Khan told reporters that reappointment of the then 10 additional judges with seniority would affect the seniority of 46 sitting HC judges.
A few SC lawyers said this is an unprecedented incident that some judges have appealed against a judgment that favours other judges in the higher judiciary.
Former Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) secretary advocate M Enayetur Rahim said a division has been created among the HC judges because of the appeal against a judgment that favoured some other judges and this division would give rise to an unhealthy atmosphere in the judiciary.
