Eminent lawyers comments that have no opportunity to appeal of the
government to the tribunal against Jamaat-e-Islami assistant secretary
general Abdul Kader Mullah’s jail for lifelong. They said that Kader
Mullah have been discharged of his crimes, if the government wishes to
appeal against it. Eminent lawyer Barrister Rafique-ul-Haq and
prominent criminal law specialists and Bangladesh Bar Council
vice-chairman Advocate Khandaker Mahbub Hossain took part in the
discussion. However, the tribunal prosecution’s team chief coordinator
MK Rahman said over telephone to the talk show that the government can
appeal against acquittal. Constitution 104 number section has a chance
to appeal against life acquittal. The defense team chief coordinator
Barrister Abdur Razzak said over phone that the tribunal witness
didn’t saw to Abdul Kader mullah to crime. Everybody has given
deposition based on listening. We think the verdict is not logical and
therefore we decided to appeal against it. They have given comments in
the Diganta TV yesterday evening. Barrister Rafiq-ul-Haque said about
the government’s movements against verdict of Abdul Kader Mullah. He
also said you (governments) should give court go on his own view.
Don’t create pressure to the court by movements, protests and
struggle. He said Tribunal has verdict life sentence death against
Abdul Kader Mullah.
Government protests against verdict of Kader Mullah. The central
leader of ruling party has demanded to execution for the defendants.
The more verdicts were waiting. If the tribunal gives of verdict then
we will mean that tribunal has ordered by the fear of government’s MP
and Ministers. I think those involve in anti and on behalf of
movements it’s not right way. Finally it creates a horror situation
across the country. Law should run its own speeds. The nation expect
of real judges from the tribunal. Khandaker Mahbub Hossain said that
defense party can appeal against tribunal’s verdict. He also said I
was a Chief Prosecutor in 1973. MK Rahman said the appeal shall have
immunity. We get justice after appeal. Five accusations were proved.
The Prosecution failed to do that.
