Chief Justice barred from duty forcefully: BNP

General Secretary of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) commented that Chief Justice (CJ) Surrendra Kumar Sinha is not sick, and he was forcefully barred from carrying out his duty. HE said this to the reporters at BNP office in Nayapaltan.

He said, "The CJ visited Japan and Canada a while ago. The people do not know anything about any treatment received by him there. He gave some important decisions and signed files at his office in Supreme Court on the day before yesterday. He decided to attend the reunion of lawyers with all the justices on yesterday (Tuesday), but yesterday the Attorney General and Law Minister told the media that he is suffering from cancer.

"A police official on the day before yesterday (Monday) told the Supreme Court Bar Association President and its General Secretary who went to the CJ's residence to meet with him, in front of media that the honorable Chief Justice said, 'I am fine, but cannot talk now.'"

Mirza Fakhrul commented that, "All these prove that the Chief Justice is not sick. He is forcefully barred from his duty."

"The concerned people along with the lawyers are protesting this nasty unprecedented example of forcing a Chief Justice to go on vacation after not liking the verdict given by the highest court," he added.

Commenting that Awami League is trying to establish a BAKSHAL regime by creating a docile opposition through the January 5, 2014 election, Mirza Fakhrul said, "They grabbed the administration and the lower court. They are obstructing the political acitivities and freedom of speech."

"In this situation, the highest court, which is the last resort to seek justice, has become the target of attack by the authoritarian government," commented the BNP General Secretary.
