Legality of Articles 95, 116
HC adjourns judgment sine die
The High Court (HC) adjourned on Tuesday sine die the delivery of its verdict on a writ petition filed challenging the legality of Articles 95 and 116 of the Constitution, reports UNB.
An HC bench of Justice Quazi Reza-Ul Hoque and Justice Mohammad Ullah passed the adjournment order.
Supreme Court lawyer Eunus Ali Akond, also the writ petitioner said, the court will deliver its verdict any day.
Earlier on Monday, the HC bench set Tuesday for delivering the judgment.
Advocate Eunus filed the writ petition with the court on November 3.
The petitioner said that the two Articles are contradictory to the Articles 7,22,26,31 and 109 of the Constitution.
The writ was filed following a recent remark by Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha that the Article 116 of the existing Constitution is one of the main reasons behind the slowness of the judiciary. Speaker, Law Secretary, Cabinet Secretary and Supreme Court's Registrar General were made respondents to the petition.
