Khaleda's Petition

Contempt hearing now today

The hearing of the contempt of court petition filed by Khaleda Zia against the government over the Dhaka Cantonment house was not held yesterday, as the Supreme Court did not sit due to the countrywide hartal called by BNP.
The SC will hear the petition today, said Attorney General Mahbubey Alam.
“The judges of the apex court did not sit in the ejlash [courtroom] today considering that the lawyers concerned would not be able to attend the court due to the countrywide dawn-to-dusk hartal,” he told The Daily Star.
The judges of the Appellate Division came to their offices but did not sit in the courtroom, the AG added.
A three-member Appellate Division bench headed by Chief Justice ABM Khairul Haque on Monday fixed yesterday for hearing the contempt petition.
The bench on that day dismissed three petitions filed by the BNP chairperson against an HC verdict that had upheld a government notice asking her to vacate the cantonment house.
On November 23, Khaleda filed the contempt petition against eight high officials of the government and the Cantonment Board for "evicting" her from the disputed house on November 13 despite an appeal was pending with the apex court.
