Azam Jahangir Chowdhury
a businessman from Dhaka has decided to withdraw the extortion case he
filed against Awami League (AL) President Sheikh Hasina and her cousin Sheikh
Fazlul Karim Selim about one and a half years back.
He already submitted an application to the home ministry on Sunday , seeking an
executive order for withdrawal of the case through the court concerned.
Speaking at a press briefing at his Gulshan office at around 11:00am, he said
that the case against Sheikh Hasina and Sheikh Selim was filed due to some
misunderstanding in the adverse circumstances prevailing at that time.
Azam Jahangir , managing director of East Coast Trading Ltd, termed the filing
of the case an undesirable experience for him.
He said that he was withdrawing the charges as a matter of principle, and out
of respect for democracy and fundamental rights. Replying to a question he
hoped that Sheikh Hasina , the former Prime Minister and the daughter of the
founding father of Bangladesh will not file a defamation case against Azam
