Judges of both divisions of Supreme Court to join the meeting

The Supreme Court on August 6 (Thursday) will decide whether to start its usual functioning through physical presence as requested by the Supreme Court Bar Association.

The apex court on August 3 issued a notification that said the judges of both the divisions of the Supreme Court will join the full court meeting through video conference at 3pm on Thursday.

Curtailing or cancelling the annual vacation will also be discussed among other matters at the meeting, added the notification signed by Supreme Court Registrar General Md Ali Akbar.

Meanwhile, the lower courts across the country will start their regular operation from August 5, more than four months after the government declared nationwide general holiday and subsequent limited operations to tackle the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus (Covid-19).

The apex court in a recent notification said all civil and criminal courts, and tribunals will start regular operations with physical appearance from August 5.

“While conducting the regular operations at the civil and criminal courts, and tribunals, all are being directed to follow Supreme Court directives regarding protective measures on the court premises and inside the courtrooms,” the notification said.

To stop the transmission of Covid-19, the government declared a general holiday from March 26 to May 30. Later, courts started limited operations virtually and in line with the practice directions issued by the apex court.
