MP Latif sued for distorting Bangabandhu’s portrait
MA Latif, the Awami League lawmaker from Chittagong-11 constituency, has been sued for distorting the portrait of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
Saifuddin Ahmed Robi, a former central committee member of AL’s youth front Jubo League, filed the Tk 1,000 crore defamation suit with Chittagong Metropolitan Magistrate’s Court today, reports the Bangla daily Prothom Alo.
Taking the case into cognisance, Judge Farid Ahmed ordered an additional deputy police commissioner to investigate the matter and submit the report by the next 15 days.
According to the case statement, Latif has made a poster in which he has put his head on the portrait of Bangabandhu.
“The AL lawmaker has mocked the father of the nation by this act. I have lodged the case as a conscious citizen of the country,” Robi said.
