Law Minister Anisul Huq yesterday said the government has already initiated the process to bring BNP senior Vice Chairman Tarique
A Dhaka court places Mia Nuruddin Ahmed Apu, a defeated BNP candidate for Shariatpur-3 constituency, on a five-day remand in connection with a case for allegedly distributing Tk 8 crore to influence the December 30 national election and instigate violence.
The Awami League yesterday questioned BNP acting chairman Tarique Rahman's involvement in the party's nomination process for the upcoming national election.
The Election Commission will take steps within the law against Tarique Rahman’s involvement with BNP’s nomination process if a complaint is received, an election commissioner says.
BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir reacts to the objection raised by ruling party leader Obaidul Quader over Tarique Rahman.
He was hardly known to outsiders until his father, General Ziaur Rahman who became Bangladesh's president in the process of several coups and counter-coups, died in another military putsch in May 1981. Through a Bangladesh Television programme, the countrymen, eventually came to know of Tarique Rahman. And today, he is facing life term as the court verdict goes. From the crux of political power he now lives the life of a fugitive.
Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader describes BNP Senior Vice Chairman Tarique Rahman as a mastermind of the much-talked-about August 21 grenade attack.
The Supreme Court directs the lower court concerned to complete the trial proceedings of a money laundering case against businessman Giasuddin Al Mamun, also a close friend of BNP senior vice chairman Tarique Rahman, in four months.
