Terming the behaviour of pro-BNP lawyers at a courtroom of the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court an unpardonable offence, Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Friday said they turned the courtroom into a battle field.
“Pro-BNP lawyers’ behaviour at the courtroom was audacious and it’s an unforgiveable offence,” he said while speaking at a press conference at AL President’s Dhanmondi political office in the city.
Quader, also the Road Transport and Bridges Minister, said, “The government has nothing to do with the release of Khaleda Zia as she was not imprisoned in any political case but in a corruption one.”
“BNP’s has been claiming that Khaleda is in jail in a political case which is a lie,” he added.
Quader also said any anarchy in the name of movement by BNP men will be resisted and their ‘non-political’ activities will be responded harshly.
On Thursday morning, a six-member bench, headed by the Chief Justice, left the courtroom after a group of pro-BNP lawyers shouted and made chaos at the courtroom during the hearing of an appeal filed by Khaleda in Zia Charitable Trust corruption case.
