Lawyers hold rally in SC, ignores CJ callNew Age Online
Pro-BNP lawyers on Wednesday demonstrated in the apex court premises defying the chief justice’s call for not to hold any rally, procession in the Supreme Court compound.
The lawyers held the rally after the Supreme Court Bar Association president AJ Mohammad Ali at a press conference today said there is no agreement that they cannot held any rally or procession to press home their demands at the court premises.
Attorney general Mahbub-e-Alam, however, supported his earlier remark that lawyers from both camp were agreed not to hold any procession at the court compound to uphold the dignity of the SC.
Mahbub-e-Alam said the SCBA president has changed his position following pressure from the BNP and Jamaat leaderships.
Pro-Awami League and pro-BNP lawyers on Tuesday had assured the chief justice that they would not get involved in the politics of confrontations on the Supreme Court premises anymore.
The assurance came after the chief justice, Md Muzammel Hossain, had called senior lawyers of the Supreme Court, including lawyers from both camps, to discuss Sunday’s incident where pro-BNP lawyers were beaten by Awami League activists during opposition’s ‘march for democracy’ programme.
