CJ being sent abroad 'by force': BNP

BNP on Friday alleged that the government is sending Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha abroad by 'force' to establish its full control over the judiciary.

Party secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam made the allegation while talking to reporters after visiting ailing BNP standing committee member Tariqul Islam.

“It’s now clear to the entire nation that the government has taken all the steps to send the Chief Justice abroad by force. It’s also clear to all that the government is making all efforts to control the judiciary,” he said.

He said the government took the move against Sinha for cancelling the 16th amendment and unveiling the truth and the current situation of the country in the verdict. “The government can't accept and tolerate the verdict as they think it may put them in trouble.”

Fakhrul also questioned as to why the government is not allowing the Chief Justice to clear his position on his leave, sickness and foreign tour. “I think, the government should allow the Chief Justice to talk about it.”

He said the government is only giving information about his illness, leave and tour. “But we’re getting information from the newspapers, social media and other sources that he is being sent abroad by force. Indian media also ran news on it.”

Earlier on Thursday, Law Minister Anisul Huq said the government only followed Sinha’s wish in issuing the executive order on the leave, its extension and his move to go abroad.

He also said the Chief Justice is scheduled to leave the country for Australia today and return home on November 10 said.unb.
