State prosecution filed the review to create pressure on judges: alleges Allama Sayedee’s defence counsel
Monday, 18 January 2016
Advocate Khondokar Mahbub Hossen, the main defence counsel of Jamaat-e-Islami’s Nayeb-e-Ameer and world renowned religious scholar Allama Delwar Hossain Sayedee confidently said that, we will win in the review petition of Maulana Sayedee and I firmly believe that he would be free by the grace of Almighty Allah.
He said this in a press meet held at the Supreme Court Bar auditorium on Sunday. The press meet was arranged immediate after filing of the review petition by the defence seeking acquittal from all the charges against Maulana Sayedee. Among others, Sayedee’s son Masood Sayedee, defence lawyer Advocate Tajul Islam, Advocate Yousuf Ali and Advocate Matiur Rahman Akanda were present in the occasion.
Khondokar Mahbub alleged that, the attorney general’s office filed the review just to create pressure upon the judges. There is no legal ground of filing such review. If someone’s crime is proved, the court the right authority to punish him.
He further said, the tribunal awarded death sentence to Maulana Sayedee for the charge of murdering one Bishabali. But when Bishabali’s family member Shukh Ranjan Bali tried to appear before the tribunal as the defence witness, he has been abducted from the tribunal premise. Later, this man was found in a prison in India. But he went over there, is still a mystery. 

He claimed the prosecution tried to prove their case by false witness and evidences but they failed ultimately. We, the defence counsels truly believe our review would be accepted this time and Maulana Sayedee would be free.
