Charges framed against Fakhrul in defamation case
A Dhaka court has framed charges against BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir in a defamation case filed for making disparaging remarks about the Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and the Awami League. Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Nurnabi Mirza framed the charges on Sunday, rejecting the discharge petition filed by the BNP leader. As the charges were read out before Fakhrul, he pleaded not guilty and sought justice from the court. The court fixed October 23 for recording testimonies for the case, reports the UNB. According to the case statement, Fakhrul at a press conference at the BNP's central office at Naya Paltan on August 24 2014 said: "Sheikh Hasina herself is a murderer and her party, the Awami League, is known as the Murderers' Party." "Her [Hasina's] hand is stained with the blood of hundreds of youths. There is no difference between the Awami League and the Pakistani Hanadar Bahini," Fakhrul added. Online and print media outlets and television channels ran stories on the statement of the BNP leader. Following the incident, Nur-E-Alam Siddique, vice-president of the central committee of Bangladesh Awami Motshojibi League, filed a case with the court of Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Snigdha Rani Chakrabarti on September 1. However, Fakhrul was able to secure bail later on.
