The trial activities in both the divisions of the Supreme Court will not be conducted on Monday in honor of the late senior lawyer and Attorney General Mahbubey Alam’s death. 

Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain made the remarks at a virtual bench of the Appellate Division on Monday. “We are shocked. The Supreme Court is not sitting today in honor of the Attorney General,” he said.

Additional Attorney General Murad Reza, Barrister Ruhul Quddus Kajal, Secretary of the Supreme Court Bar Association and other lawyers were virtually involved at the time.

Attorney General Mahbubey Alam breathed his last at the Combined Military Hospital (CMH) in Dhaka on Sunday evening.

He has been the Attorney General since January 13, 2009. He is also the chairman of the Bangladesh Bar Council. There has been no Attorney General in Bangladesh for so long. Besides, Mahbubey Alam, former president of the Supreme Court Bar Association, was also elected secretary of the association for one term.
