SC grants exemption from personal appearance to 6 pro-BNP lawyers



The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court has exempted six pro-BNP lawyers from personal appearance over making their slanderous, derogatory and contemptuous comments about two apex court judges.

The court also ordered them to submit written explanations over the issue by July 25.

The Appellate Division bench headed by Chief Justice Obaidul Hassan passed this order after the six pro-BNP lawyer appeared before it this morning.
The lawyers are Md Kayser Kamal, Fahima Nasrin, Md Abdul Jabbar Bhuiyan, Md Ruhul Quddus Kazal, Mohammad Mahbubur Rahman Khan and Gazi Kamrul Islam Sajal.

The court passed the order following a petition filed by the lawyers seeking exemption from personal appearance before it.

On August 29, 2023, SC lawyer Md Nazmul Huda submitted a contempt of court petition to the apex court praying to draw contempt of court proceedings against the seven lawyers and to punish them for their comments about the two SC judges at a press conference held on the Supreme Court Bar Association premises on August 27.

Among the seven lawyers, Adv AJ Mohammad Ali expired last month.
