Dissolution of partnership
Having considered the cases cited above, we find that a deed of dissolution of partnership is not required to be registered under section 17 of the Registration Act because the share of a partner in a partnership is essentially moveable property notwithstanding that a part of the partnership property may be immovable.

Persona Designata
In legal parlance the expression “persona designa” means a person who has been described in a statute or a legal instrument by his official designation, and his function may be judicial or may not be so. But if the function of the designated person is judicial in character then he is nothing but a “court” even though he is not described as a court but by official designation. The test is the power and function he has to discharge.

Basic Principles of Waqf
Three basic principles governed the waqf: the trust was required to be irrevocable, perpetual, and inalienable. Once property was declared waqf by its owner, the trust thereby created was irrevocable. It means (i) inalienable lands used for charitable purposes and (ii) pious endowments.

10 SCOB [2018] AD 12
Commutation of Sentence
On the question of commutation of the sentence, we are to take into consideration the heinousness of the offence committed in juxtaposition with the mitigating circumstances. It is by now established that in Bangladesh the sentence for the offence of murder is death which may be reduced to one of imprisonment of life upon giving reasons. It has been the practice of this Court to commute the sentence of death to one of imprisonment for life where certain specific circumstances exist, such as the age of the accused, the criminal history of the accused, the likelihood of the offence being repeated and the length of period spent in the death cell.
