All SC affidavit branch staffers transferred for graft

A day after the Chief Justice expressed his dissatisfaction over the corruption and irregularities in the section, all the officials and employees of the Supreme Court’s affidavit branch were transferred en masse on Tuesday. The SC administration issued an order in this regard, said its Special Officer Mohammad Saifur Rahman. “All the officials and employees of the Supreme Court Filing Affidavit Branch have been transferred,” he said.

On Monday, Attorney General Mahbubey Alam drew the attention of the Appellate Division to a case which was put at No 90 of the SC cause list although it was supposed to be at No 3. He also said many have become millionaires after manipulating the cause list. Expressing his annoyance, Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain said, “What else will we do? We couldn’t prevent the irregularities even after installing CCTV cameras at the affidavit branch.”
