The Bangladesh Nationalist Party-BNP wants to free its chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia before the Eid. Begum Zia will have to take bail in six cases within the next 20 days to be free before the Eid. Last night, BNP lawyers held a review meeting on Begum Zia`s ongoing cases. In the meeting, the order has been given to start work on the bail for Cumilla`s two cases from next Sunday. The BNP backed lawyers also decided to apply for immediate bail in the respective courts in other cases.
A lawyer from BNP said, "We know that Begum Zia will not find bail in the lower courts. That is why we want to bring the case to the High Court as soon as possible."
When contacted, Advocate Zainul Abedin, one of the most important lawyers of Begum Zia, said, "Those cases Begum Zia has been shown arrested are motivated, ridiculous and harassment-oriented. We will not only appeal for bail but also appeal for the cancellation of these cases." BNP lawyers have formed six teams for the bail in six cases simultaneously. In addition to these six teams, a team led by Khandker Mahbub Hossain will work to ensure that the High Court will grant the bail quickly.
