High court scraps case against Hasina but the battle is not yet over February 6, 2008


High Court gave judgment on 6 th February 2008 against the trial of the extortion case filed by Azam J Chy under Emergency Power Rules.

HC declared that Bangladesh Constitution didn’t allow EPRs to deal with the cases which occurred earlier before the promulgation of Emergency Power Ordinance.

Amicus Curiae, who gave their opinion earlier in favour of scraping, expressed satisfaction in the judgment. Acting President of AL Zillur Rahman said that the judgment shows that Hasina is innocent. Lawyers of Sk Hasina opined that it is not win of Sk Hasina only, it is the win of law.

The Law Adviser when asked said that as it is a corruption case ACC will look after the matter.

In the mean time, Government appeal against the judgment in the Supreme Court.

Analyst says the battle is not yet over and fate of 150 cases depends on the ultimate verdict by the Supreme Court on the appeal.


Someone also argued whether the verdict is in contradiction to an earlier verdict by the High Court?
