Obaidul: Govt did not have any hand in staying Khaleda's bail order
The government played no role in staying Khaleda Zia's bail in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case, said Minister of Road Transport and Bridges and General Secretary of Awami League Obaidul Quader. He said: "The verdict was declared by a Supreme Court bench under the supervision of the Chief Justice. The government did not interfere in any way." Quader made these comments while visiting the Banani graveyard to pay his respects to the late President Zillur Rahman on Zillur's fifth death anniversary on March 20. Countering BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam's comments that the government had influenced the Supreme Court in its verdict, the minister further said: "We respect the court, but BNP does not pay any heed to the law or the court. Whenever any verdict goes against them, the party called BNP protests against it." The Supreme Court has stayed until May 8 the High Court order which granted bail to BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case. On the occasion of the late President Zillur Rahman's death anniversary, Awami League and its affiliated party leaders went to the Banani graveyard on Tuesday morning to pay homage by laying wreaths on Zillur's grave. Special prayer programs were also organized there. This article was first published on banglatribune.com
