Judge embarrassed to hear petition
A High Court judge on Wednesday felt embarrassed to hear a writ petition challenging the legality of Speaker Abdul Hamid's June 18 ruling.

The Speaker had stated that an HC judge (Justice AHM Shamsuddin Choudhury Manik) violated the constitution by making derogatory remarks about parliament and the speaker.

Justice Naima Haider did not mention any reason for feeling embarrassed. The bench comprising Justice Naima and Justice Muhammad Khurshid Alam Sarkar also returned the petition to the petitioner.

A Supreme Court lawyer, Advocate AKM Shafiuddin, filed the petition, praying for an HC rule upon the Speaker and secretaries to the parliament and the law ministry to explain why the ruling should not be declared illegal. -The Daily Star online edition July 19, 2012.
