HC asks govt for SC judges' remuneration

The High Court yesterday issued a rule upon the government to explain within three weeks why it should not be directed to implement recommendations of the parliamentary sub-committee concerned to increase salaries and allowance of Supreme Court judges.
The HC bench of Justice AHM Shamsuddin Chowdhury Manik and Justice Sheikh Md Zakir Hossain issued the rule following a writ petition filed by two SC lawyers, Manzill Murshid and Asaduzzaman Siddiki.
A parliamentary sub-committee in January last year recommended making the salaries and other privileges for the chief justice Tk 1.52 lakh, for each of the Appellate Division judge Tk 1.20 lakh and for each of the High Court judges Tk 1.08 lakh per month, the petitioners said.
