In Bangladesh, seven of the 10 amici curiae (friends of court) have given opinions against trying BDR personnel accused of different offences committed during the February 25-26 mutiny at the BDR headquarters, in military court.
Two of the advocates were the last to tell the Supreme Court that it is not possible to try these offences under the Army Act 1952.
Earlier, five lawyers reasoned that the trial of BDR mutineers is not possible under the military law since the BDR personnel are not guided by the law.
However, two lawyers had said the mutiny can be tried under the military law by issuing notifications.
Matiur Rahman Chowdhury has the details.
