I was reading an article in Prothom Alo written by Asif Nazrul, a professor of Dhaka University, Law Department where he said that Govt took very hard stand for the trial of the corruption cases. He accused that the measures taken by the government violates the human rights.

He added that bail should have been given in these cases unless the accused is thought could manipulate the case s or may create law and order situation in the society if released on bail.

He also said that it is not wise to blame all in a purchasing process as all are not equally responsible for any misdeed that occurs in the process. Usually two or tree persons are involved who try to influence others. It would have been better if these persons are specified and actions are taken against them.

Government has given charges against 12 stalwarts in GATCO case including Saiful Rahman ex Finance Minister, Mannan Bhuiyan, LGRD minster,Motur Rahman Nizami, Industry Minister an addition to Khalada Zia.

Motiur Rahman Nizami,Amir of Jamaat e Islami, who was in the the 4 party Alliance of last elected government with BNP, said that GATCO charge sheet is politically motivated and his party will face the case both legally and politically.

Is the government true on its stand?

An ordinary citizen

Post script:

Mannan Bhuiyan and Shamsul Islam surrendered to the court and sent to jail. The anticipatory bail petition for Nizami was rejected by high court and later he was arrested from his house. Police failed to arrest MK Anwar after searching his house.

JI Secretary General Abul Ahsan Mujahid said that if being member of a government purchase committee is enough to be accused, then it will be difficult to run a government.
