The Bangladesh Government will seek the advice of Chief
Justice MM Ruhul Amin regarding the trial of the Bangladesh Rifles (BDR)
Law Minister Shafique Ahmed made the announcement Monday
that the Supreme Court will be consulted on whether the alleged mutineers
should be tried under civilian or military law.
The Court will also be asked for its opinion on how the trial
can be conducted fairly and efficiently.
Section 106 of the Bangladesh constitution allows the
President to seek the opinion of the Supreme Court on any issue.
The request will be sent to the Chief Justice next week.
