A Writ Petition Challenges Emergency Power Rules in Bangladesh


The hearing of a writ petition filed with the High Court — challenging some provisions in the Emergency Powers Rules, including those related to bail, attachment of property and punishment — has been deferred till August 20.

The High Court bench of Justice Shah Abu Nayeem Zubayer Rahman Chowdhury, in response to a prayer for more time by the government, fixed the date.

The court on Tuesday asked Rafique-ul-Huq, the lawyer for the petitioner, to submit a list of specific provisions of the emergency rules which were made in violation of the constitution, to court on August 16 after a short hearing of the petition.

One Abdul Kuddus Mandal, an accused in an extortion case in Natore, filed the writ petition, challenging the government’s move to try his case under the emergency rules.
