Former Prime Minister Hasina files Writ Petition


Detained former premier and Awami League (AL) President Sheikh Hasina today filed a writ petition challenging legality of the government action to bring an extortion case against her under the Emergency Powers Rules (EPR). The EPR bars an accused from seeking bail until the case is resolved. Barrister Shafique Ahmed, a counsel for Hasina, said the petition is likely to be heard in a day or two by a High Court Division bench comprising Justice Shah Abu Nayeem Mominur Rahman and Justice Zubayer Rahman Chowdhury. On September 2, the Anti-Corruption Commission filed a case against Hasina and six others with Tejgaon Police Station, complaining that the accused ‘through connivance and use of influence’ helped a foreign company and its local partners win a deal for setting up three barge-mounted power plants.
