Own Correspondent, Dhaka, 31 August 2023: Chief Justice Hasan Foez Siddiqui wept at the memory of his parents and leaving the judiciary on his last judicial day as Chief Justice. While the Chief Justice was crying, his daughter, grandson and other relatives present in the courtroom were also seen crying.

The emotional scene unfolded while the Chief Justice was giving a speech at the farewell reception in the Appellate Division's courtroom on Thursday. At one point of the speech, the Chief Justice said, I remember my late parents with deep respect at this farewell moment. They have become residents of Jannat after taking immense pains and sacrifices for me and every member of our family. They have helped me in my struggle.

By saying this, the Chief Justice became emotional and cried. He could not speak for a minute. At that time, the Chief Justice's elder daughter, grandson and younger daughter's son-in-law, who were present in the courtroom, were also seen crying. For some time, the entire atmosphere of the Agelas room became silent.

After that, the Chief Justice said in an emotional voice, I fell in love with the judiciary and I tried to keep the memory alive.

All the judges of the Appellate and High Court Divisions, a large number of lawyers were present at the reception. There was no place to hold moles in the ageless room.
