Lawyers’ explanation sought for court vandalism
Bangladesh Bar Council yesterday issued a show-cause notice seeking explanations from nine lawyers over the incident of vandalising a Chittagong court on January 18. In the notice, the licensing and regulatory body of lawyers of the country asked those lawyers, all members of Chittagong District  Bar Association, to respond by February 14. If they fail to give reply, it warned, the case will proceed against the lawyers according to the law. The lawyers are Advocate Jannatul Ferdous Mukta, Advocate Chandan Biswas, Advocate Shakil, Advicate Awal khan, Advocate TR Khan, Advocate Prodip Das, Advocate Shibli, Advocate Masud Parvez and Advocate Mustafiz. It requested to submit reply to the allegations to the secretary of Bar Council. Deputy Secretary of Bangladesh Bar Council Md Afzal-ur Rahman issued the notice. It was served being instructed by High Court Division’s Registrar Abu Syed Dilzar Hossain following a petition of complaint. The petition of complaint along with the replies will be placed before the executive committee chairman of Bar Council for scrutinising as to whether there is any prima facie case for reference to Tribunal for disposal. On January 18, a group of agitated lawyers vandalised the court after it rejected bail to a lawyer and his wife in a human trafficking case. The couple was arrested from Chittagong airport on allegation of providing support to one Rohingya woman and a Bangladeshi man to fly for Saudi Arabia with fake documents. The following day, the chief justice formed a three-member committee to probe the vandalism incident, and on January 23 Supreme Court authorities asked Bar Council to take action against the rowdy lawyers.
