Post No- 132

Writ-Question No-06 (Writ Part):

The Chittagong port Authority (CPA) issued a tender inviting bids for handling of containers at the Port. Several parties participated in the bid and one of them was awarded the contract for 3 (three) years from 1 June, 2008 to 31 May, 2011/1 June 2018 to 31 May 2021. In March, 2010/2019, that is to say, prior to the expiry of the period of the contract, the CPA cancelled the contract without any show-cause notice on the ground that the contractor had failed in executing the contract in accordance with its terms. There was a provision in the contract that it could be terminated by the CPA giving 3(three) months prior notice to the contractor which was not complied with in this instance. There was also an arbitration clause in the contract for the reasolution of disputes which was not invoked by the CPA. Your client is the contractor.

Draft a writ petition challenging the termination, setting out clearly the grounds as to why you think the writ is maintainable, as well as the grounds for challenging the termination and the relief that the contractor is entitled to. (29 November 2008, 15 July 2011).
