Dr M Zahir says that the present
conflict between the Parliamentary Committee of Bangladesh parliament and the
Anti -Corruption Commission is unfortunate and needs to be resolved
immediately. In an exclusive interview
with VOA Banga Service , he suggests
that this can be resolve if President asks Supreme Court to give clarification
on this issue.
Dr Zahir, who is an eminent
jurist in Bangladesh says that the parliament in Bangladesh is sovereign but
one has to see whether they have passed any law which would allow the committee
to summon Chairman and Members of Anti Corruption Commission. Barrister Zahir , however , says that ACC is
not a constitutional body like Election Commission , it is a body formed by law
. He also says that there must be accountability for this commission about
their work over the last two years.
In answer to another question
about the lease on opposition leader
Khaleda Zia 's Cantonment House , Barrister Zahir says that the conditions of
lease needs to be seen for legal reason . He, however, says that moral ground
favors Khaleda Zia's vacating the possession on that large house because the
circumstances have changed since she was given this house.
