Law Minister Anisul Haque has said that the Supreme Court (SC) will soon come up with clarification regarding its notice that requested print and electronic media to refrain from reporting on ongoing cases at the court.
“SC judges are discussing about the circular and the top court will clarify it very soon so that there will be no confusion over this issue,” the law minister said.Anisul Haque made this remark while talking to newsmen after a meeting with Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain at the latter’s office on Monday.
The law minster also informed journalists that he discussed about the notice with chief justice.
Soon after the notice was issued, Law Reporters Forum, a platform of reporters who cover law, human rights, and constitutional issues, said they were saddened and shocked by the notice.
Earlier on Thursday, the SC administration issued a circular asking print and electronic media to refrain from reporting on ongoing cases at the court.
