Govt seeks stay on High Court order over mobile court

 

 

The government on Sunday filed an appeal plea with the appellate division seeking a stay on the High court order that had declared executive magistrate-led mobile courts illegal.

 

Deputy Attorney General (DAG) Motahar Hossain Sazu said the chamber judge of the Appellate Division may hold hearing on the petition later in the day.

 

The HC judgment means that executive magistrates now can't run mobile courts empowered to try a number of offences, including illegal assembly, public nuisance, illegal connection of electricity, water and gas, and cheating at examination centres.

 

It, however, said mobile courts can be run by judicial or metropolitan magistrates.
