HC verdict on SC letter to ACC today

The High Court will deliver its verdict today on the rule issued over the legality of the Supreme Court administration's letter to the Anti-Corruption Commission about former Appellate Division judge Md Joynul Abedin.

The letter had said it would not be appropriate for the ACC to take action against Justice Abedin, a former apex court judge, who went on retirement on December 31, 2009.

Yesterday, the HC bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Shahidul Karim fixed the date for delivering the verdict as it concluded hearing on the rule on October 31.

On October 9, the HC issued the rule asking the then SC registrar general, the then additional registrar, Justice Joynul and the ACC chairman to explain why the letter should not be declared illegal.

SC lawyer Badiuzzaman Tafader placed a copy of the letter before the HC bench for necessary order.

The ACC on March 2 sent a letter to the SC's registrar general's office, asking for documents regarding the service, salaries and relevant benefits received by Justice Joynul.

In response, the SC administration on March 28 sent the letter to ACC, saying that if action is taken against the former SC judge, it will call into question all the verdicts he delivered.
