CJ attends SCBA lunch
Annual lunch of Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA), which is now dominated by pro-BNP lawyers, was held on its premises yesterday.
Chief Justice ABM Khairul Haque attended it upon 'special request' of SCBA leaders despite the CJ's earlier refusal to the invitation, as the leaders fiercely criticised him over different issues.
Khairul Haque on January 30 refused to attend the lunch as SCBA President Khandker Mahbub Hossain and Secretary Bodruddoza Badal met him to invite, say sources.
The chief justice has finally decided to attend the SCBA lunch to show respect to the special and humble request of its leaders and some senior counsels, SC Registrar Ashraful Islam told The Daily Star.
