BNP on Friday alleged that Attorney General Mahbubey Alam is making all-out efforts to suppress the government’s opponents as he enjoys when sees BNP leaders in pain.
Speaking at a press conference at BNP’s Nayapaltan central office, party senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi also alleged that the Anti-Corruption Corruption (ACC) has also got desperate to meet Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s demand by enchaining BNP.
“Despite being the highest law officer of the state, the Attorney General is trying to suppress BNP with his all strength,” he said.
Rizvi said the Anti-Corruption Corruption (ACC) filed a leave-to-appeal petition against their party chairperson Khaleda’s bail while the Supreme Court stayed until Sunday her bail following the Attorney General’s appeal. “The Attorney General is the legal officer of Sheikh Hasina, not of the state.”
He hoped that their chairperson will get justice from the Supreme Court though Mahbubey Alam is acting to keep her in jail.
The BNP leader alleged that the ACC has now become the main instrument of the government to take its political revenge of BNP.
He said the ACC is very active over the Khaleda’s a ‘false’ graft case, but it is not taking any action against those who are plundering banks and financial institutions.
Rizvi turned down Inspector General of Police (IGP) Javed Patwari’s comment that Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal leader Zakir Hossain Milon died in hospital, not in police custody.
“The entire nation knows he died due to torture during police remand. But the IGP said he died at hospital…his remark is travesty of truth as Milon died in jail without treatment after torture,” he observed.
The BNP leader also voiced concern for taking Jatiyatabadi Swechchhasebak Dal leader Shafiul Bari Babu on police remand repeatedly.
Rizvi demanded the government immediately release Babu and other party leaders and activists arrested over the last one-and-a-half months.
He said their party has rescheduled its rally in Barisal for April 7 from March 24 demanding the release of its chairperson Khaleda Zia.unb
