BNP today termed statements of two ministers about the chief justice ‘audacious’ and ‘threatening’.

Addressing a discussion in the capital yesterday, Food Minister Qamrul Islam said that the appeal in Jamaat-e-Islami leader Mir Quasem Ali's case should be reheard by a reconstituted Appellate Division bench of the Supreme Court, keeping the chief justice out of it.
Qamrul, who was state minister for law when the tribunal was formed in 2010, told the discussion that the chief justice in an open court made some observations that raised questions about the prosecutors and investigators' role in the trial.
On the other hand, Liberation War Affairs Minister AKM Mozammel Haque also made some observations during yesterday’s programme.
