SC issues directives for judicial officers on use of social media

The Supreme Court administration today issued several directives for the judicial officers on their use of social media, restraining them from uploading pictures and video clips of SC judges, publishing and disclosing information and making comments against the national unity and spirit.

The instructions were issued through a notification saying that the judicial officers cannot use social media during their working hours from 9:30am to 4:30pm.

The notification, signed by SC Registrar General Dr Md Zakir Hossain, said if the instructions are defied, it will be considered as misconduct and Bangladesh Judicial Services (Discipline) Rules, 2017 and other relevant existing laws will be applicable in this regard.

The directives were issued on recommendations from the Supreme Court Special Committee for Reforms, the notification said.
