BNP: Scrapping 16th Amendment a victory for the people
The BNP has hailed the Supreme Court’s decision that declared illegal the 16th Amendment to the constitution which had earlier empowered the House to impeach the apex court judges. “We consider the verdict as a victory for Bangladeshi people,” BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi said while briefing the media at the party's Nayapaltan headquarters in Dhaka on Monday, hours after the top court’s decision. He said the apex court’s decision halted the government’s plot to grab the judiciary.

“It [the verdict] will be help establish an independent judiciary and good governance,” he said, adding, the development will restore the people's trust on the establishment of rule of law for all. Following the verdict earlier in the day, Manzil Murshid, one of the petitioners who moved the court against the amendment, said the Supreme Judicial Council from now on would deal with judges’ removal.
