Quader’s meeting with CJ an ‘onslaught’ on judiciary’s independence: Moudud
Criticising Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader for meeting the Chief Justice after the 16th amendment verdict, BNP senior leader Moudud Ahmed said it is an ‘onslaught’ on the independence of the judiciary.
Speaking at a discussion, he also said Law Commission Chairman ABM Khairul Haque should not only apologise to the nation, but also to resign from the Commission for violating his service rule by holding a press conference to criticise the Supreme Court verdict.
“A top leader of the ruling party met the Chief Justice after the verdict. It’s a dangerous incident for the nation. It’s an onslaught on the independence of the judiciary. Social values and the dignity of the judiciary has also been undermined with it, the BNP leader said.
