Attorney General Mahbubey Alam has alleged that the book written by former Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha from abroad has tarnished the image of the judiciary.

 “Why were other judges of the Appellate Division reluctant to sit with the chief justice at that time? If this is made public, it will spread more stench and further damage the judiciary,” Mahbubey Alam said.

The attorney general made the allegation while talking to the reporters at his office in the Supreme Court on Tuesday, reports bdnews24.com.

“It’s very unacceptable to make aspersions on those who presided over court proceedings with him during his tenure as the chief justice. In doing so, he is destroying the judiciary's image," Mahbubey Alam said.

In his book titled “A Broken Dream: Rule of Law, Human Rights and Democracy” which is available on Amazon, Justice Sinha said he resigned in the face of intimidation and threats.

Justice Sinha would have retired on January 31, 2018, but he had to step down 81 days before the end of his term.
