The Appellate Division has scrapped High Court's stay order
The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court has scrapped the High Court order that stayed the publication of gazette notifications of the ninth wage board for newspaper journalists.
There are no bars to publish the gazette notifications now.
A four-member bench of the Appellate Division, headed by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain, gave the order on Tuesday, after hearing an appeal petition filed by the state against the High Court order.
On August 14, the Supreme Court chamber judge fixed August 19 to hear a government appeal against the High Court's order.
The state sought a stay on the court's order to maintain a status-quo for two months on publication of gazette notifications of the ninth wage board.
Justice Md Nuruzzaman, chamber judge of the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court, sent the appeal, 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.
