President Abdul Hamid listed the 11 major allegations, including money laundering, financial scam, corruptions and moral degradation, against the chief justice.
A notice to this effect, signed by Registrar General of Supreme Court Syed Aminul Islam, titled “Statement of the Supreme Court of Bangladesh regarding the written statement given by Honourable Chief Justice SK Sinha before he went abroad on leave,” was published on the Supreme Court’s website on October 14.
The statement said that the written statement that Sinha supplied to journalists on October 13 before his departure was confusing and the Supreme Court had issued this statement to clarify the matter.
