3 get bail after protracted confinement without trial

BSS

Three people who languished in jails without trials for periods ranged between 15 to 18 years are set to come out of prison on bail granted yesterday by the High Court, reports BSS.
"The High Court in a simultaneous order also ordered authorities concerned to dispose of cases against Makbul Hossain, Sentu Kamal and Billal Hossain within 90 days," a court official familiar with the process told BSS.
He said the development came as the jail authorities produced the three detainees before the two-member High Court bench as ordered earlier.
The bench comprising Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice JBM Hassan granted the bails two weeks after it issued a rule asking for an explanation about their confinement without trial.
Officials concerned said the three, Makbul Hossain, Sentu Kamal and Billal Hossain, were expected to be freed on bail in next one or two days on exhaustion of required procedures. In a separate order, the bench asked a trial court to dispose of a case pending against one Chan Miah within 60 days saying he could not be granted bail immediately since he already gave a confessional statement in the case.
Mia was also produced before the court as ordered before, the official said. Chan Miah, Makbul Hossain, Sentu Kamal and Billal Hossain were languishing in jail without trials for 18, 17, 16 and 15 years respectively. The High Court move came as a private TV channel recently carried a report on the plight of the four, grabbing the court's attention.
The same court earlier on November 8, granted bail to a man detained for long 16 years without trial. 
After the report of Channel 24, the Supreme Court legal aid office recently sent letters to prison authorities to give the lists of inmates kept behind the bars for five to ten years without any trials.
