The court’s instruction issued on Thursday had created much confusion in the mass media

The Supreme Court has clarified its instruction to the media regarding publication or airing of news reports on sub judice cases.

The statement, signed by Registrar General Md Zakir Hossain and issued on Tuesday, said that the apex court has always believed in the freedom of media.

But airing or publication of news that may hurt the court’s image and reputation, and influence the case proceedings are not expected, said the statement.

On Thursday, the top court had published a circular stating: “It has been noticed recently that some electronic and print media are broadcasting or publishing news reports or running scrolls relating to ongoing cases, which is totally undesirable.”
