Update : 31 Aug 2022, 09:44 PM

A chamber court of the Appellate Division has fixed October 17 to hear a petition filed by Nobel laureate Dr Muhammad Yunus against a High Court order rejecting his plea to dispose the labour law violation case against him.

Chamber Judge M Enayetur Rahim fixed the date on Wednesday. 

Senior Lawyer Abdullah Al Mamun stood for Dr Yunus, while Md Khurshid Alam Khan represented the labour court.

Md Arifuzzaman, a labour inspector of the Department of Inspection for Factories and Establishments, lodged a case with Dhaka third Labour Court against Dr Yunus and three other people accusing them of breaching the Labour Act on September 9, 2021.

Yunus filed a petition before the High Court seeking cancellation of the case. On December 12, the High Court put a stay order on the proceedings of the case and issued a rule asking why the case will not be scrapped.

The prosecution then filed a petition with the Appellate Division asking for resuming the trial proceedings. On June 13, 2022, the Appellate Division ordered the High Court to dispose of the rule within two months.

On August 17, the High Court nullified its ruling and pronounced a verdict on the petition filed by Dr Yunus.

On August 24, 2022, Yunus filed a petition with the Appellate Division against the High Court’s verdict, the hearing date of which was fixed on Wednesday.
