Even CCTV cameras are failing to stop irregularities, laments the chief justice

Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain has expressed his discontent over irregularities at the affidavit department of the Supreme Court.

“We are not being able to stop irregularities even after installing CCTV cameras there. Now all are doing the affidavits outside the room,” he said during the hearing of a case on Monday, reports BSS.

He made the remarks after Attorney General Mahbubey Alam informed the five-member apex court bench, led by the chief justice, that the case was supposed to be at number three of the cause list, but was mysteriously kept as 89th item.

“Many have become billionaires by tampering with the cause list,” the attorney general said.

The chief justice also said that many state lawyers do not come to court because they are paid high salaries, if they were paid less they would have come on time, reports Bangla Tribune.

The chief justice then summoned Mohammad Mehdi Hasan, the deputy registrar of the Appellate Division, expressed displeasure at his explanation, and ordered him to do his duty properly.
