Appellate Division asks students to return to classes

Appellate Division asks students to return to classes

The Appellate Division on Wednesday issued a status quo on a High Court verdict declaring the decision to cancel quota system for the first- and second-class freedom fighters' (FFs) in government jobs for four weeks.

At the same time, the court also set the date for hearing on the issue after the next four weeks.
A five-member Appellate Division bench led by Chief Justice Obaidul Hassan delivered the order following a hearing at the Appellate Division on Wednesday (July 10).

Attorney General AM Amin Uddin stood for the state, while Advocate Shah Manzurul Huque moved on behalf of the petitioner during the hearing on the issue.

The hearing was initially scheduled to start at 10:00am, but the time was later changed by the Appellate Division.

Chief Justice Obaidul Hassan said, "We will hear the arguments from all the aggrieved students through their lawyers. And the court will consider their statements during the disposal of main petition."

After a hearing on two separate petitions challenging the High Court's judgment, a five-member Appellate Division bench led by the chief justice passed the order for four weeks with a few observations and directives and set August 7 for next order.

The pleas were earlier filed by the government and two students of Dhaka University.

On Tuesday, the writ petitioner appointed a new lawyer and applied for a hearing in the special chamber court. Chamber Justice Ashfaqul Islam subsequently fixed Wednesday for the hearing.

As the full verdict has not yet been published, the chamber court specifically ordered the status quo.
