SC hearing on CHT Mar 3
Dhaka, Jan 26 (bdnews24.com)—The Appellate Division has set Mar 3 to hear a petition regarding the Chittagong Hill Tracts Regional Council.
Chamber judge S K Sinha on Wednesday fixed the date after hearing on the appeal.
The hearing will be in response to a petition filed by the government last year against a High Court order that declared formation of the Council illegal.
The Court handed down the order on Apr 13 last year upon a petition filed in 2000 by a Bengali settler in Rangamati, challenging the peace treaty signed in 1997.
Supreme Court lawyer Mohammad Tazul Islam filed another petition in 2007.
Additional attorney general Murad Reza argued for the state while Sarah Hossain for the petitioner during the hearing.
