The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court fixed Wednesday for a hearing on a High Court verdict that declared the decision to cancel quota system, including the first and second-class freedom fighter quota in government jobs, illegal.

The chamber judge of the Appellate Division Justice Md Ashfaqul Islam fixed the date on Tuesday (July 9).

Advocate Shah Manzurul Haque moved for the hearing in the court.

The court of the Chamber Judge sat at 11:30 am today just to fix the hearing date of this case.

Earlier, on June 5, the High Court declared illegal the circular that cancelled the quotas, including those for freedom fighters, in first and second-class government jobs.

Later, on June 9, the state filed an application to suspend the judgment of the High Court. On July 4, the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court upheld the High Court’s verdict.
