The Chairman said that the two contempt petitions against Shahrier Kabir and Mr Mann of Channel 1 have been rejected and we will pass the order at our chamber.
Interrogation of Mir Kashem Ali in the safe home
Chairman then referred to the next petition which is about interrogating Mir Kashem Ali in the safe home. Prosecutor Sultan Mahmud Simon has stated that because of the shortage of the time they were unable to complete the interrogation of Mir Kashem Ali so they are praying for 2 more days for the interrogation.
Chairman responded by saying we have passed the order about this, but the defence is stating they have not been informed before 48 hours before the interrogation starts.
Sultan Mahmud Simon has replied that the son of Mir Kashem Ali was present on that day who is also a lawyer.
Chairman, okay this time we are giving the name of the defence lawyer who is to be informed 48 hours before the interrogation.
Islam asked why the tribunal was passing an order when it had not heard the defense. He also said that the contempt application against the investigation officer is still pending as he violated the last order by interrogating the accused without notifying the defense. The chairman said that this was a bonafide mistake. 'We have already asked them to give explanation. You should give us name of the person who should be notified this time before interrogation.' The defense then gave the name of Tanvir Ahmed Al-Amin.
