Attorney general asks the bench to pardon the judges for their errors as they both are inexperienced

The High Court has once again asked the two lower court judges to give further explanations on actor Pori Moni's second and third remands in the case filed under the Narcotics Control Act.

The bench comprising Justice Mustafa Zaman Islam and Justice KM Zahid Sarwar passed the order on Wednesday.

During the hearing, Attorney General AM Amin Uddin asked the High Court bench to pardon the two judges for their errors as they both are young and inexperienced.

Earlier, the two judges, Dhaka Metropolitan magistrates Debabrata Biswas and Md Atikul Islam, on September 14 issued apologies to the High Court for placing Dhallywood actor Pori Moni on remand several times.

They submitted separate written explanations to the Supreme Court registrar general's office.

The High Court bench on September 15 expressed dissatisfaction with the explanations of the two lower court judges.

As stated by the court, one of the two judges explained the destructive impact of a drug rather than legal issues, while the other judge did not believe an error had been committed in granting the remand.

In response, the High Court said it had sought to know the legal reason for the repeated remand orders, not an incident of drug abuse.

The court later ruled that the remand order for Pori Moni did not follow the guidelines issued by the High Court and Supreme Court, or the country's existing laws.

Consequently, Wednesday was scheduled for further hearing on the matter.
