Journalist Rozina must get justice: Law Minister

Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Anisul Huq said Prothom Alo senior reporter Rozina Islam must get justice.

He said this to reporters at his residential office in the capital's Gulshan on Tuesday night.

The minister said, "I will just say that in such an incident if there is any suspicion of creating a gap between the government and journalists, then the government will surely try to remove it.”

On the day of hearing, the court will surely look into it and consider everything. He would also ask the prosecution to look into the case, he added.

“I can say that Rozina Islam will definitely get justice,” he said.

Earlier, journalist leaders including the president and general secretary of the National Press Club and Bangladesh Secretariat Reporters Forum met the law minister and briefed him about Rozina Islam’s incident.

A Dhaka court meanwhile, sent Rozina, arrested in a case under the Official Secrets Act, to jail after rejecting the police's demand for her five-day remand.

She was arrested for allegedly attempting to illegally “collect sensitive government documents and taking photos of them” from the Secretariat on Monday.

The Prothom Alo journalist rejected all the allegations saying, "I was, in fact, harassed at the Secretariat."
