BNP has alleged that judges now dare not deliver ‘proper verdict’ on the bail petition filed by BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia in a graft case as they witnessed the consequence of former Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha.
BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi said this while addressing a press conference at BNP central office in the capital’s Nayapaltan area on Friday morning.The remark came a day after the High Court rejected incarcerated BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia's bail petition in the Zia Charitable Trust corruption case again on Thursday.
The BNP leader said, “Khaleda Zia has been kept in prison for two years. The case (Zia Charitable Trust graft case) lodged against her is bailable considering all, including her age and health condition. But she was not granted bail due to direct intervention from Ganabhaban. She has been deprived of her human, constitutional and legal rights again.”
Rizvi also claimed that former Prime Minister Khaleda Zia would be granted bail if the judiciary system enjoyed minimum freedom.
