    The government has put the last nail on the coffin of judiciary by moving to empower the parliament to impeach Supreme Court judges, the BNP said today. "The government intends to establish full control over the judiciary for obstruct its independence, the party's acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said at a rally at the Jatiya Press Club.

"Otherwise, the rents will not be admissible as expenses," the NBR said in a notice on Monday. It means businesspeople and professionals will have to pay more tax if they do not pay such rents through banks. The expenses, claimed by taxpayers as rental payments for properties, will then be treated as income and entail tax, taxmen say. NBR officials said people who will fall under the professional category...
