AG: Appeal against HC order on 16th amendment in a month
Attorney General Mahbubey Alam said on Monday that the state will file an appeal within a month challenging the High Court order declaring the 16th amendment to the constitution illegal. “We’ve been trying to have the certified copy of the verdict passed by the HC, and we’ll file an appeal once we get it. We hope to submit the appeal within a month,” Mahbubey Alam said at a press briefing in his office. On September 17, 2014, the parliament passed the 'Constitution (16th Amendment) Bill, 2014' without any opposition, empowering the parliament to impeach judges of the Supreme Court in the case of their incapacity or misconduct. On May 5, the High Court declared the 16th amendment illegal and contradictory to the national charter. The High Court released the full text of its verdict on August 11 earlier this year. The AG said two judges declared the 16th amendment to the constitution illegal while another passed an order terming it legal.
