Mainul Hosein’s bail upheld

Staff Reporter, Dhaka

The chamber court yesterday upheld the High Court orders that granted bail to Barrister Mainul Hosein in 14 defamation lawsuits.

Chamber Judge of the Appellate Division Justice Md Nuruzzaman passed “no order” on the government’s appeal against High Court order that granted bail in the cases and stayed the trial proceedings of defamation cases against him. The chamber judge’s “no order” means that the High Court order will remain in force.

So, now there is no legal bar for Mainul to get released from the jail as there is no arrest warrant for him in the few other cases in which Mainul was made accused, Advocate Masud Rana, a lawyer for Mainul Hosein, said.

Earlier on January 13, the High Court granted bail to Barrister Mainul Hosein for six months in the cases and stayed the trial proceedings of 15 defamation cases filed against him for the next six months.

The HC bench comprising Justice Md Rezaul Haque and Justice Zafar Ahmed came up with the order after hearing 15 petitions filed by Mainul seeking bail and stay in the cases. Mainul was arrested on October 22 in a case filed for defaming journalist Masuda Bhatti on a television talk-show. Members of the Detective Branch of the Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) produced Mainul before the court on 23 in connection with a defamation lawsuit filed in Rangpur.
