Many of the judges couldn't hear the virtual oath properly

Within hours of taking oath of office virtually, 18 newly-confirmed judges of the High Court Division were sworn in afresh physically on Saturday. 

At first, Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain administered oath of office to the recently appointed and confirmed High Court judges, by video conference around 3:00pm on Saturday.

Judges of both the appellate and high court divisions of the SC virtually attended the swearing-in ceremony, conducted by Supreme Court Registrar General, Md Ali Akbar.

However, due to some technical problems, many of the judges couldn't hear the oath properly, and the chief justice decided to administer the oath again physically and in person. 

The Supreme Court issued a press release in this regard on Sunday.

The oath taking ceremony was held in the chambers of the chief justice around 9:30pm on the same day, the press release said.

President M Abdul Hamid, in consultation with the chief justice, formally inducted the 18 additional judges into the High Court on May 29.

The 18 new judges are: Justice Md Abu Ahmed Zomadar, Justice SM Abdul Mobin, Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman, Justice Fatema Najib, Justice Md Kamrul Hossain Molla, Justice SM Kuddus Zaman, Justice Md Atowar Rahman, Justice Khijir Hayat, Justice Shoshangko Shekhor Sarker, Justice Mohammad Ali, Justice Mohi Uddin Shamim, Justice Md Riyaz Uddin Khan, Justice Md Khairul Alam, Justice SM Moniruzzaman, Justice Ahmed Sohel, Justice Sardar Md Rashed Jahangir, Justice Khandaker Diliruzzaman, and Justice KM Hafizul Alam.
