There is no bar to his release now, said his lawyer

The High Court has granted bail to Barrister Mainul Hosein for six months in 15 cases filed against him over defaming journalist Masuda Bhatti at a television talk show in October 2018.

The High Court bench of Justices Md Rezaul Haque and Zafar Ahmed passed the order on Sunday, after hearing a bail petition filed by Mainul’s lawyers.

Senior lawyer Khandakar Mahbub Hossain, along with advocate Md Masud Rana moved for the bail petition in court. 

Later Khandakar Mahbub Hossain said: “The High court granted Mainul bail for six months in 15 defamation cases filed against him. However, trials of three other cases- filed against him on the same charge- are not underway, and thus no need to secure bail in these cases. Now there is no bar to his release.” 

On October 16, during a television talk show aired in Ekattor TV the former caretaker government adviser called Masuda Bhatti “characterless.”

Mainul, former advisor of the caretaker government, was picked up a DB team from the residence of Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (JSD-Rab) President ASM Abdul Rab in the capital’s Uttara on October 22.

He was shown arrested in a defamation case filed in Rangpur over his verbal abuse of journalist during a talk show.

Later a bunch of libel cases and cases under the Digital Security Act were filed against Mainul from different places of the country.
