'11 major allegations' against the Chief Justice
Five judges of the Appellate Division have declared that they cannot continue working with Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha because of “eleven gross allegations including money laundering, financial scam, corruptions, moral degradation against him.” A notice to this effect, signed by Registrar General of Supreme Court Syed Aminul Islam, titled “Statement of the Supreme Court of Bangladesh regarding the written statement given by Honorable Chief Justice SK Sinha before he went abroad on leave,” was published on the Supreme Court's website on Saturday. The statement said that the written statement that the Chief Justice supplied to journalists on Friday night before his departure was confusing and the Supreme Court had issued this statement to clarify the matter.

It said on September 30 the president invited five judges of Appellate Division to Bangabhaban. Four judges -Justice Md Abdul Wahhab Miah, Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain, Justice Hasan Foez Siddique and Justice Mirza Hussain Haider - met with the president. Justice Muhammad Imman Ali could not attend the invitation as he was abroad. After a long discussion the president handed over documentary evidence on the eleven specific and grave allegations to the judges. After Justice Muhammad Imman Ali's return, the five judges held a meeting on October 1 and after discussing the allegations thoroughly, decided to inform Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha. If he failed to provide satisfactory answer to the allegation they will not share bench in the courtroom in court proceedings. The same day around 11:30am they went to meet Sinha at his official residence in Ramna and had a long discussion. The statement says the judges did not get satisfactory answers from the Chief Justice and told him they will not be able to take part in court proceedings with the him until he is absolved of these allegations. The statement claims that at that stage, the Chief Justice told them that he will resign, and promised to give them a final decision on the next day. But instead he took a month-long leave. The Chief Justice left for Australia on Friday night, issuing a statement to the press that he was not ill and had been embarrassed by the prime minister's criticism against him.
