Bnp expresses frustration at SC verdict against Salauddin


BNP has expressed its frustration, surprise and shock as the Appellate Division upheld the death sentence o party leader Salahuddin Quader Chowdhury on charges of crimes against humanity.
“Our party considers like his lawyers that he did not get justice. He was given death sentence unjustifiably. We are anguished and really shocked at the judgment, said BNP spokesperson Dr Asaduzzaman Ripon.He came up with the party’s formal reaction to the Supreme Court judgment at a crowded press conference at a press conference at party headquarters at Naya Paltan on Wednesday.
Replying to a question, he said their party would not launch any programme against the verdict as it is still under trial.
The BNP leader said the party considers that Salahuddin Quader Chowdhury has become the victim of political vendetta.
He also said that they think that there were lacks of transparency in judicial process and different loopholes in the charges brought against him.
Mentioning the many faulty verdicts of the world, he said that the judgments of the courts were proved faulty after their execution.
“Thus, we hope that the verdict of Salahuddin Quader Chowdhury will not be considered as a judicial killing in future. And he will not be deprived of getting justice in the review process of the case,” he said.
Ripon, also international affairs secretary, alleged that there was a political pressure to influence his trial.
He reiterated that the BNP is in favour of holding trial against crimes against humanity but the trial should be transparent, neutral and an environment free from political pressure so that none could be the victim of political vendetta.
Meanwhile, talking to the BBC, BNP standing committee member Barrister Jamiruddin Sircar expressed his regret over the judgment that upheld the death sentence of Salahuddin Quader Chowdhury. – Staff Reporter
