A bench of Justice Md Moinul Islam Chowdhury and Justice Justice Khandaker Diliruzzaman issued the rule after hearing a writ on Sunday

The High Court division of the Supreme Court issued a rule to the government agency concerned asking why direction should not be given for the forming of an independent service to operate and administer appointments, promotions, removal, and training of state attorneys and prosecutors. 

A bench of Justice Md Moinul Islam Chowdhury and Justice Justice Khandaker Diliruzzaman issued the rule after hearing a writ on Sunday. 

Secretary of the Ministry of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs, the Cabinet Division, and Chairman of the Law Commission are required to reply to the rule within four weeks. 

Advocate Farhad Uddin Ahmed Bhuiyan stood for the writ while Deputy Attorney General Saifuddin Khaled represented the state. 

Earlier on November 11, advocate Farhad Uddin filed the writ with the High Court division.

The writ claims that in recent times the government has appointed state attorneys and prosecutors in violation of relevant rules of procedure, with a focus on their political background instead of merit, intelligence, and professional training. 

On July 7, the Law Ministry appointed 105 assistant attorney generals and 70 deputy attorney generals.
