Writ challenges holding offices by two ministers
Petitioner Yunus Ali Akond yesterday sent Food Minister Qamrul Islam and Liberation War Affairs Minister AKM Mozammel Haque legal notices seeking explanations within 24 hours on the issue. He also notified them of filing writ petitions if the notices were not answered. In the writ filed with the High Court on Monday, Yunus Ali Akond sought that the court orders ministers Qamrul Islam and AKM Mozammel Haque to explain why they are still in office after the court’s judgment. Citing the Apex court’s judgment, the petitioner said that under the Public Servants (dismissal on conviction) Ordinance-1985, a government service holder will be dismissed if s/he is fined with Tk 1,000 or more. The apex court on March 27 had rejected the unconditional apology of the two ministers and fined them Tk50,000 each for making controversial statements about the chief justice and the judiciary in connection with war crimes cases against executed Jamaat-e-Islami leader Mir Quasem Ali. On Thursday, the Supreme Court released the full text of its verdict that the two ministers violated the oath of office by questioning the authority of the judiciary. The SC came up with the order as ministers Qamrul Islam and AKM Mozammel Haque demanded resignation of the Chief Justice for his reported remarks that ‘the prosecution is doing politics with the trial of condemned war criminal Mir Quasem Ali. They were speaking at a round table organised by Ekattorer Ghatak Dalal Nirmul Committee in the city on March 5, 2016. On March 8, the Supreme Court ordered the duo to appear before it by March 15 in connection with their reactions to the remarks of Chief Justice SK Sinha. On 14 March, Qamrul Islam and Mozammel Huq offered unconditional apology to the court for their remarks.
