Fakhrul’s statement is contempt of court: Quader
Awami League (AL) General Secretary Obaidul Quader has said BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir’s statement terming the High Court verdicts in graft cases as “pre-ordered” is an insult to the country’s law and judiciary.
He said this in a statement on Wednesday (May 31), protesting the comments of Fakhrul over the recent court verdicts against two BNP leaders in separate graft cases.
Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, said Fakhrul’s irresponsible statement about the High Court judgments upholding the sentences of the lower court to two BNP leaders has disappointed the country’s people.
The statement of Fakhrul over the High Court verdicts was tantamount to contempt of court, he added.
He said the consequences the two BNP leaders are now facing is the result of their constant ill-politics.
The BNP had indulged in corruption and looting of public money by opening Hawa Bhaban during the reign of the BNP-Jamaat alliance government, resulting in making Bangladesh champion in graft, the AL general secretary said.
He said the documents of corruption of Tarique Rahman, the patron of Hawa Bhaban, was disclosed in global media and WikiLeaks.
