The Supreme Court on Sunday has upheld the High Court decision staying the third suspension of Gazipur City Corporation Mayor MA Mannan, clearing the way for him to continue his duties.
Three-member Appellate Division, led by Surendra Kumar Sinha, passed 'no order' on a petition filed by the government.
Barrister Mahbub Uddin Khokon moved for mayor Mannan while Attorney General Mahbubey Alam represented the state in the court.
Now Mannan will not face any obstacles from taking up his post, his lawyers said.
The government order suspending Mannan for three months after a hearing petition on was frozen by the High Court.
The Local Government Division had issued the order on Thursday, barely a month after Mannan returned to office following a legal battle.
Mannan was being removed because of charges pressed against him by the Anti-Corruption Commission, said the order.
A vice-chairman of the BNP, Mannan was elected mayor of the Gazipur City Corporation in 2013.
