The High Court will be closed from December 19 to January 1, during which 11 benches will be held in the High Court Division to conduct emergency cases.
Out of these 11 benches, there are 8 divisions and 3 single benches. The bench was constituted by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain. A notification to this effect was published on the website of the Supreme Court on Monday (December 13).
The Chief Justice is retiring on December 30 after completing 8 years of age. That is why his last working day as Chief Justice is December 15.
Because December 16 is the day of great victory, and December 16 and 17 are weekly holidays. So if all goes well, Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain is in office for only 16 days, till December 30.
