A committee has been set up to probe allegations of irregularities and corruption against officials and employees at the Supreme Court.
The committee has been formed in the direction of the newly appointed Chief Justice Hasan Foez Siddique.
High Court division Additional Registrar Md Abdur Rahman and Deputy Registrar (Finance) Md Mizanur Rahman have been designated to perform the job, Supreme Court spokesperson Mohammad Saifur Rahman told the media.
Earlier on 31 December, Foez Siddique took oath as the 23rd chief justice of the Supreme Court.
On 2 January, at a reception programme organised by the Attorney General’s Office and the Supreme Court Bar Association, the chief justice said he would not compromise on corruption.
“We would not give indulgence to any evil force in the judiciary. Corruption is a cancer. The best way to treat a cancer infected finger is to cut it out. We would take action right away if we learn about corruption of any employee of the judiciary,” he said on that day.
