A George Mia and independence of Judiciary in Bangladesh September 6, 2009Posted by bdoza in BANGLADESH, JUDICIARY, POLITICS.
In relation to 21st August, 2004 bomb blast event, a George Mia was accused and arrested which later on found to be falsely implicated to save the actual culprits of the murder attempt on the opposition leader and present PM Sk Hasina. Dozens of leaders and workers died on the spot and many injured, the spot turned into a hell, though the PM survived luckily.
George Mia later released but in a recent news he said that he is feeling unsafe and afraid of his own life.
The Government has decided to reinvestigate the whole episode of 21st August to bring the culprits and their patrons to book. Demand also raised to find out the wrongdoers who knowingly involve George Mia in the case.
I was recently listening to a discussion, where to a question to an expert whether a new George Mia will not be created, he couldn’t give any guaranty, the answer points to the frustration over the independence of our judiaciary, though it is said to be separated from the executive.
