SC refuses to issue short order on Khaleda Zia’s bail

  • Print
The Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected the short-order petition filed by Khaleda Zia's lawyer on its previous judgement that upheld the bail order in Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.

Assuring the BNP lawyers of releasing the full order soon, the Supreme Court said there is no rule for the Appellate Division to release any short order in advance on its judgement.

A four-member bench of the Appellate Division, led by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain, passed the order around 11:30 am after delivering its order on the bail pleas in the graft case.

Khaleda's counsel AJ Mohammad Ali filed a petition before the court seeking a short order for submitting bail bond on the judgment.

Attorney General Mahbubey Alam said, "Khaleda Zia has been shown arrested in a number of cases. Besides, there's no provision to pass a short order from the Appellate Division."

Justice Iman Ali also said, "There's no provision to pass such an order."

The Chief Justice then told the BNP counsel, "We refuse your prayer on short order."

At one stage, AJ Mohammad Ali told the court, "I've come to the court alone, not in a group."

In an instant reaction, Justice Mirza Hussain Haider, another member of the bench, said, "You can't force the court." 

Later, the Chief Justice said, "We don't pass order considering any group."

However, Mohammad Ali apologised to the court and said, "The court can react, but the court doesn't allow us (lawyers) to react."

Justice Hasan Foez Siddique then asked AJ Mohammad Ali why he was arguing with the Chief Justice as he has already refused to issue any short order.
