NOAB president filed a petition on August 5

The Supreme Court chamber judge has fixed August 19 to hear a government appeal on the ninth wage board for journalists. 

The state sought a stay on the High Court Division order to maintain a status-quo for two months on publication of gazette notification of the ninth wage board.

Justice Md Nuruzzaman, chamber judge of the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court, sent the appeal on Wednesday, filed on August 8, to be heard by a regular Appellate Division Bench.

The bench of Justice Obaidul Hassan and Justice Mohammad Ali issued the status-quo on August 6 after hearing a petition filed by Matiur Rahman, president of Newspaper Owners Association of Bangladesh (NOAB), on August 5.

Last month, Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader said a gazette will be published after the Cabinet approves recommendations for implementing the ninth wage board.

Quader said they made realistic recommendations after discussions with the stakeholders.
