Law Minister Anisul Huq on Sunday said the gazette on service rules and conduct for lower court judges' will be finalized by Thursday (July 20).
The minister said these while talking to newsmen at the Supreme Court after coming out of his meeting with Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha.
"He went there to apprise the chief justice of the development in this regard and held a meeting with him," law ministry spokesman Dr Md Rezaul Karim told BSS.
The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court (SC) on July 2 had granted the state two weeks time for finalizing service rules and conduct for lower court judges' and publish gazette in this regard.
The law minister on the same day had expressed hope to finalize the gazette by July 15.
"Conduct rules for the lower court judges' would leave an impact on the discipline of the judiciary. So we are now scrutinising all the relevant issues regarding the rules so that it cannot be questioned once the gazette notification is published. I am hoping the gazette would be published by July 15," he said on that day.-BSS
