The Supreme Court (SC) has suspended its lawyer Yunus Ali Akhand temporarily for his derogatory comments about judiciary.
An Appellate Division bench, led by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain, on Sunday asked him to appear on October 12 for explanation.
The court also asked to explain within October 11 why this lawyer will not be given punishment.
Earlier, lawyer Yunus Ai posted a status on his Facebook wall over virtual court which was contempt of court rule.
Additional Attorney General Murad Reza brought the matter to the notice of the court.
The SC directed BRC to block the Facebook account of Yunus Ai after removing the derogatory comment.
