The Supreme Court has cleared the way for Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) for auctioning off 4G spectrum for the telecommunication industry in the country.
The SC extended its chamber judge’s order that stayed a High Court directive halting the auction.
The order was passed by a five-member bench of the Appellate Division headed by Justice Md Abdul Wahhab Miah who is performing duties as the chief justice.
Sources said the Appellate Division heard the counsel for all the parties and at 11:30am gave an order that the stay given earlier by the chamber judge shall continue.
Previously on January 11, the SC stayed a HC order that halted the auctioning of 4G spectrum for the telecommunication industry of Bangladesh.
