Staff Correspondent: The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court (SC), on Monday extended one week timeframe for the government to publish a gazette notification on the disciplinary and conduct rules for lower court judges.

The court also asked the government to submit the published gazette notification on the disciplinary and conduct rules for lower court judges within the timeframe.

A six-member bench of the Appellate Division led by Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha passed the order following a petition.

Attorney General Mahbubey Alam in favour of the State filed the petition seeking more time for issuing the gazette notification.

Earlier, the government sought time in several phases to publish a gazette notification in this regard.

On November 7 last year, the Supreme Court ordered the government to issue a gazette notification on the disciplinary and conduct rules for lower court judges by 24 November.

On December 2 in 1999, the Supreme Court in the Masdar Hossain case issued a 12-point directive, including formulating separate disciplinary rules for the lower court judges.
