'It clearly manifests that BNP has no respect for the rule of law'

Law Minister Anisul Huq has said action will be taken against those who created chaos in the Appellate Division during the hearing on a bail petition of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia on Thursday.

He came up with the remark while talking to reporters at his Gulshan residence in Dhaka on Thursday afternoon, reports UNB.

The minister said pro-BNP lawyers and BNP activists tried to create anarchy and chaos at courtroom whenever any court order or verdict went against them. 

"It clearly manifests that BNP has no respect for the rule of law."

He categorically said the government will not allow anyone to disrespect any institution of Bangladesh.

 "It is the government's duty to maintain the law and order and resist any chaotic situation. The government will be forced to take legal action against those behave like this."

The judicial activities at the Appellate Division remained halted for three hours on Thursday morning amid chaos by pro-BNP lawyers demanding that hearing on the bail petition of the BNP chief in Zia Charitable Trust graft case be held on Thursday.

The pro-BNP lawyers started demonstration when the Appellate Division deferred the hearing until December 12 as the medical team failed to submit its report on Khaleda's health.

Protesting against the deferment of the hearing, some 200 pro-BNP lawyers entered the courtroom around 10:30am and created a chaotic situation, forcing judges of the six-member Appellate Division bench to leave the courtroom ahead of the regular break.
