He also said Sinha tarnished the honour of the post of chief justice
Liberation War Affairs Minister AKM Mozammel Haque has blamed former chief justice Surendra Kumar Sinha for making controversial the post of chief justice, and continuing to hatch conspiracy against Bangladesh.
“No corrupt individual like SK Sinha has been seen in the history of Bangladesh judiciary before. He is continuing to hatch conspiracy against the state both at home and aboard,” the minister said while speaking at a discussion organized by Bangladesh Online Activists Forum (BOAF) at the National Press Club in Dhaka on Saturday.
He said Sinha not only tarnished the dignity and honour of the post of chief justice, but also trampled the Constitution of Bangladesh.
Mozammel demanded of the authorities concerned to bring him back to Bangladesh immediately to ensure his trial.
The minister was very critical of Sinha, the 21st chief justice of Bangladesh, saying: “He (Sinha) is now maintaining good contact with Tareq Rahman and Priya Saha. So it is the state’s responsibility to bring him to justice as no one is above the law.”
BOAF President Kabir Chowdhury presided over the discussion on “Corruption of Former Chief Justice SK Sinha and Misuse of Power.”
Former Food Minister Advocate Quamrul Islam, MP, former Press Club president Shahfiqur Rahman, MP, journalist and columnist Swadesh Ray, and General Secretary of Bangladesh Open University Teachers’ Association Prof Arifa Rahman Ruma, among others, spoke at the event.
