Dhaka – The High Court Division of the Supreme Court yesterday stayed the proceedings of three violence cases filed against BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia in 2015.
A High Court bench of Justice Mitfah Uddin Chowdhury and Justice ANM Bashirullah passed the order after Khaleda Zia's lawyer Barrister Mahbub Uddin Khokon filed three petitions seeking stay on the case proceedings. The court also issued a rule asking the prosecution as to the acceptance of the charges of these cases should not be declared illegal.
Meanwhile, Deputy Attorney General Sheikh AKM Moniruzzaman Kabir said that they are getting prepared to file an appeal against the order.
Of the cases, two were filed with Jatrabari Police Station and the other with Darussalam Police Station on the charge of instigating violence during the non-stop blockade programme enforced by the BNP-led alliance in 2015.
“The BNP Chief was confined to her office from January 5 of 2015 and the cases filed accusing her of ordering violent activities are politically motivated”, said her counsel Barrister Khokon. -Special Correspondent
