‘No restriction on mobile courts until May 18’

The government can run mobile courts by Executive magistrates throughout the country until May 18.

A chamber judge stayed on Sunday a High Court verdict declaring mobile courts illegal and unconstitutional.

Chamber Judge Justice Hasan Foez Siddique gave the new order after hearing a petition filed by the state for the stay. The new order will be in force until May 18, reports bdnews24.com.

Attorney General Mahbubey Alam represented the state during the hearing and Deputy Attorney General Motaher Hossain Saju was with him.

Barrister Hassan MS Azim represented the petitioners.

The latest order by the chamber judge means there are currently no obstructions to the operation of the mobile courts.

On May 11, Justice Moyeenul Islam Chowdhury and Justice Ashish Ranjan Das passed the order after disposing of the rules issued in 2011 and 2012 following three petitions.

The court had ordered the law to be revised in line with the Masdar Hossain decision or the creation of a new law for the operations of mobile courts.

The state decided to contest the decision and a petition was filed by Deputy Attorney General Motaher Hossain Saju at the Supreme Court on Sunday.
