Order after examining Ekattor TV CD

18 August 2015, Nirapad News: The Supreme Court will pass verdict after examining the CDs containing video and audio clips of a talk show titled Ekattor Journal aired by Ekattor TV.

A SC bench led by Chief Justice SK Sinha passed the order Tuesday.

Earlier Attorney General Mahbubey Alam submitted the CDs before the Appellate Division bench comprising Justice Nazmun Ara Sultana and Justice Hasan Foez Siddique and the court set August 18 for holding hearing into the matter.

The SC on August 11 asked the TV channel to submit the CDs containing audio and video clips of the August 10 episode of the said programme, which aired a telephonic conversation between two Judges of the Supreme Court.

Attorney General on that day said Ekattor TV on August 10 aired a telephonic conversation while broadcasting report on contempt of court proceedings against Janakantha editor and executive editor.

“The Appellate Division has listened opinions from me and former attorney general Mahmudul Islam in this regard. After hearing us, the Appellate Division has asked the television authority to submit the video and audio clippings of that said episode before the court,” Mahbubey Alam said.
