New deadline for conduct rule gazette
The Supreme Court has granted the government one more week to issue a gazette notification on the disciplinary and conduct rules for lower court judges in response to the two weeks prayed for. An eight-member bench of the Appellate Division headed by Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha passed the order on Sunday morning. The court extended the previous deadline in response to a petition filed by Attorney General Mahbubey Alam, who prayed for an extension of two weeks for the issuance of the gazette notification. During the hearing, the chief justice asked the attorney general: “I had a talk with the law minister recently. He said that it (gazette notification) will be done within a week. Then why are you praying for two weeks?” As the attorney general insisted, the chief justice adjourned for one week. On December 12, 2016, the Supreme Court asked concerned authorities to issue the gazette notification by January 15, 2017. Later, the deadline was extended till February 5. President Abdul Hamid had decided not to issue a gazette over the matter despite a court order requiring the government to do so. Then the bench said the president may have been misinformed. A historic Appellate Division verdict on the Masdar Hossain case mandated drafting a 12-point guideline on the separation of the judiciary from the executive. So far the Supreme Court has issued multiple orders asking the government to issue a gazette notification on the finalised rules.
