High Court issues rule on expulsion of PEC examinees

The High Court (HC) on Thursday issued a rule asking officials concerned to explain within two weeks as to why the expulsion of 15 examinees of the ongoing Primary Education Completion (PEC) examinations should not be declared illegal.

A High Court division bench comprising Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman passed the order on suo moto, asking four officials, including Primary and Mass Education Secretary and Director General of Directorate of Primary Education, to submit their explanations on December 10.

The court also asked why paragraph 11 of the guidelines on PEC and Ebtedayee examinations issued by the Directorate of Primary Education should not be declared illegal and why order shall not be passed to take examinations afresh of those expelled students.

A national daily on November 19 ran a report on expelling of 15 PEC examinees throughout the country and Supreme Court lawyer Advocate AM Jamiul Haque drew court’s attention to the matter.
