The High Court has declared it illegal to keep convicts in condemned cells before the death penalty is finalized. A High Court bench of Justice Sheikh Hassan Arif and Justice Md Bazlur Rahman handed down the verdict on Monday. 

Advocate Md Shishir Monir stood for the writ petitioner. Attorney General AM Amin Uddin and Deputy Attorney General Amit Talukder represented the state. 

On September 2, 2021, a writ petition was filed with the High Court challenging the legality of keeping the death row convict in a condemned cell before the final disposal of the case. 

Shishir Monir filed the writ petition on behalf of three death row convicts who were in a condemned cell in Chattogram Central Jail.

The writ petition sought the issuance of a rule asking why confinement in a condemned cell before the finalization of the death penalty should not be declared illegal. 

At the same time, the writ requested to transfer the three convicts from the condemned cell to the normal cell.
