SC allows govt to move against HC order on mobile court operation
The Supreme Court has allowed the government to move three appeals against High Court order that declared illegal the operation of mobile court by the executive magistrate. A five-member bench of the Appellate Division headed by acting Chief Justice Md Abdul Wahhab Miah passed the order on Tuesday granting the leave-to-appeal petitions filed by the government. The Supreme Court also fixed February 13 for the next hearing. Executive magistrates can conduct mobile courts until disposal of the appeals, Attorney General Mahbubey Alam said. Earlier on January 9, the Supreme Court came up with an order that the operation of mobile court by the executive magistrate would continue until disposal of three appeals filed by the government against the High Court verdict over the mobile court act. On May 11, the High Court declared illegal of the operation of mobile court by the executive magistrate and later on May 14, after a hearing on a government appeal, the chamber judge stayed the operation until May 18. Later, the Supreme Court extended the time for several times.
