Md. Ashraful Islam: The Chamber Court of the Appellate Division has issued a ‘status quo’ on the post of General Secretary of the Bangladesh Film Artists’ Association, suspending the High Court’s order.
Chamber Judge Obaidul Hasan passed the order on Wednesday after hearing the plea of Nipun Akter, a candidate for the post.
The Electoral Appeal Board had declared Nipun as the winner of the general secretary post by rejecting the candidature of Zayed Khan. On Zayed Khan’s appeal, the High Court stayed the decision of the Electoral Appeals Board.
The actress had filed an application in the chamber court on Tuesday seeking a stay of the High Court order. Following his hearing, Justice Obaidul Hasan referred the matter to the full bench of the Appellate Division for hearing next Sunday. Until then, direct the general secretary to maintain the status quo.
In the order, he said, “Today is the 9th, these days (until 13 February) no one will enter the post of general secretary, nothing will happen.”
Barrister Rokon Uddin Mahmud and Barrister Mostafizur Rahman appeared for Nipun in the court. On the other hand, Ahsanul Karim and Nahid Sultana Yuthi appeared for Zayed Khan.
