CJ hopes Justice Shamsuddin to return case files, not talk to media
07 February 2016, Nirapad News: Chief Justice SK Sinha expects retired Justice AHM Shamsuddin Choudhury to return the files of all unfinished judgments instead of speaking to the media.
The Supreme Court released a statement to the media on the top judge’s sentiment on Sunday. It came hours after Justice Choudhury gave his take to journalists on the controversy surrounding the writing of verdicts by judges after retirement.
The chief justice expects Justice Choudhury to immediately send the files of cases whose judgments are yet to be written to the office of the registrar general’s office, rather than continue making comments in the media about verdicts and orders of cases. The chief justice has asked for this measure ‘so that people seeking justice do not suffer’, the statement read.
The media release was issued by acting registrar general Abu Syed Diljar Hussain after the “press conference” of the retired judge at the Supreme Court premises during judicial proceedings “came to the notice” of Justice Sinha.
