Courts to remain closed till May 16

The ongoing general holidays in courts including lower courts, High Court and Appellate Division of the Supreme Court have been extended till May 16 as per government decision.

Supreme Court Registrar General Md Ali Akbar issued a circular today to this effect saying all courts of the country will remain shut from May 7 to May 14, with the following two days being scheduled weekly holidays.

The holiday was also announced in the country's courts in continuation of the general holiday issued by the Ministry of Public Administration to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Buddha Purnima's public holiday on May 6 will be added with it.

Officers and employees of both the divisions of the Supreme Court and the lower courts have also been instructed not to leave their respective places of work during the holidays.
