Legitimacy of NHRC chairman questioned
Supreme Court lawyer, Yunus Ali Akond, filed the writ at the High Court. Yunus Ali Akond said he would move it before a High Court bench on Sunday. The petition said that appointing Kazi Reazul as chairman was a violation of National Human Rights Commission Act 2007 which states that any person cannot be appointed or hold office for more than two terms. “The chairman and member of the Commission shall hold office for a term of three years from the date on which he enters upon his office, provided that a person shall not be appointed for more than two terms as a chairman or members of the committee,” Yunus quoted section 6(3) of the act. The lawyer said that Kazi Reazul have previously been appointed as a member of the NHRC for two terms and according to section 6(3) of the act his position as chairman of the commission is now highly controversial. Yunus then added that the law requires the chairman of NHRC to be a legal expert, whereas Rezaul is a bureaucrat; not a legal expert nor lawyer. “A legal notice was earlier sent to him to demanding explain on the matter. However, he did not respond, so we have filed the writ petition,” he told reporters. In the petition, the lawyer requested High Court to issue a rule to the government and concerned authorities to explain under what authority has Kazi Reazul Hoque been appointed and is holding the office as NHRC chairman.
