Staff Reporter :
The Supreme Court (SC) on Sunday brought big changes in its administration.
The SC authorities approved a proposal for transferring 10 high officials of the Supreme Court Registrar's Office, including Registrar General Syed Aminul Islam, Additional Registrar of the High Court Division Md Sabbir Faiz and the Chief Justice's Personal Secretary Mohammad Anisur Rahman.
The Law Ministry issued three separate gazette notifications in the evening after getting the Supreme Court's approval notice.
Among three District Judge level officers, Registrar General of the SC Syed Aminul Islam has been transferred as the Chairman of the 'Minimum Wage Board' of Dhaka, Registrar of the High Court (HC) Division Md Abu Syed Dilzar Hossain has been transferred as the Special Judge of the Special Court 3 of Dhaka and Additional Registrar of the High Court Division Md Jadib Hossain has been transferred as the judge of Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal of Rangpur.
Additional Registrar of the High Court Division Sabbir Faiz has been transferred as the Additional District Judge of Lalmonirhat, Personal Secretary of the Chief Justice Mohammad Anisur Rahman has been transferred as the Additional District Judge of Panchagarh, Additional Registrar of the Appellate Division of the SC Arunav Chakraborty has been transferred as the Additional District Judge of Satkhira and Special Officer of the SC A E M Ismail Hossain has been transferred as the Additional District Judge of Barguna. These four are Additional District Judge level officers.
Among three Joint District Judge level officers, Deputy Registrar of the HC Division Md Azizul Haque has been transferred as the Joint District Judge of Thakurgaon, Deputy Registrar of the HC Division
Farzana Yasmin has been transferred as Joint District Judge of Pirojpur and Deputy Registrar of the HC Division Mohammad Kamal Hossain Shikder has been transferred as Joint District Judge of Chuadanga.
The SC also approved another 15 judicial officers' transfer in the same notification.
On October 11, Law Minister Anisul Huq told reporters that Justice Md Abdul Wahhab Miah, who is performing duties of the Chief Justice, has desired to bring some changes in the SC administration.
Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha, who is now abroad, said on October 13 that he was a "bit worried about the independence of the judiciary".
Citing the senior most judge [of the Supreme Court] who is now acting as the Chief Justice, the Law Minister on Thursday said, "The judge acting as the Chief Justice will bring changes to the Supreme Court administration soon."
In a written statement the CJ said, "There is no precedence of interference in the administration of the Chief Justice by the judge acting as the Chief Justice or the government. He [the judge acting as the CJ] will only discharge daily work as per the routine. It has always been like this."
"If any interference is made in the Chief Justice's administration, it can be easily assumed that the government is interfering in the higher court and this will further deteriorate the relationship between the Judiciary and the government. It would not bring any good to the state," he concluded.
