Amendment to BCB constitution 'illegal': HC
The High Court on Sunday declared the amendment to the constitution of Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) as 'illegal'.
The National Sports Council (NSC) on November 29 last year amended the constitution of the BCB, saying that the board executive committee will be nominated through selection instead of holding election.
Delivering the verdict, the HC said the NSC has no authority to amend the constitution of the BCB.
The HC bench of Justice Sarah Mahbub and Justice Abdur Rab delivered the verdict after hearing the writ petition jointly filed by Yousuf Jamil Babu, president of the Bangladesh District and Divisional Sports Organisers' Association, and Mobasher Hossain, a former BCB director.
