Allegations of corruption against CJ can`t be raised before President: Barrister Mainul

Staff Reporter :
Allegations are being raised after Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha has gone abroad. It is forgotten that Justice Sinha is the Chief Justice of Bangladesh and protector of justice system for the people. Barrister Mainul Hosein asserted so at a talkshow of Ekattor Tv on Saturday night. He pointed out that the judiciary is above the government.
The President has no authority to deal with corruption allegations against the Chief Justice and no documents should have been sent to him.
He elaborated to say that Justice Sinha came back from abroad to resume his duties as the Chief Justice. He was kept confined and nobody other than government men like the Law Minister Mr Anisul Huq and the Prime Minister's Special Adviser
Gowher Rizvi could meet him. Thereafter news came that the Chief Justice wrote a letter to President Abdul Hamid seeking leave for treatment abroad as he was suffering from acute cancer. The Law Minister was saying lies again and again that Justice Sinha was suffering from aggravated cancer.
The letter requesting leave on ground of ill-health described by Barrister Hosein as a lie. Acting Chief Justice Mr Abdul Wahhab Miah told the senior lawyers when they appeared before the open court seeking his help for a meeting with the Chief Justice Sinha that he (Acting CJ) said that he spoke with him (CJ) and reassured us of his good health.
One should talk about the boldness of Chief Justice Sinha who in a written statement to the journalists said he was fully in good health. He added he was embarrassed but he would return.
Barrister Hosein was surprised why allegations of corruption will be made to the President for consideration. It was also absurd to say that the President gave the documents to other judges of the Appellate Division to take them to the Chief Justice. Judges do not do that. It is for the Anti-Corruption Commission to investigate the matter.
Barrister Hosein found it most degrading that the way lies were easily circulated by responsible persons in the government about the Chief Justice of a country treating the whole nation as illiterate.
Barrister Hosein asked those who knew about the serious allegations of corruption and money laundering against Justice Sinha and then allowed him to leave the country honourably should be punished.
In answering to a question Barrister Hosein found it unbelievable that the judges of the Appellate Division expressed their unwillingness in advance to sit with the Chief Justice because of the allegations. He is away from country, the question of sitting with him is irrelevant now.
The Tv talkshow named 'Ekattor Journal' was moderated by Farzana Rupa and the other participants were Barrister Tureen Afroz and journalists Nazrul Kabir and Zahid Ahmed Pintu.
