12 Feb 2012: Nizami charge adjournment

The date was set for the start of the hearing on the prosecution application seeking that the tribunal 'charge frame' Motiur Rahman Nizami

The senior defence lawyer, Abdur Rajjak came to the dais and submitted that the prosecution document was not fully eligible to read. He said that there were 416 pages of prosecution documents which were iligible photocopies which were impossible to read by the defence counsels, and that as a result they wanted an Order for adjournment for 4 weeks regarding the charge hearing of Matiur Rahman Nijami.

The chairman said that he should first file an application and that then tomorrow they would pass an Order.

The defence said that they would submit this application identifying all eligible copies by 2pm.

The prosecution said that amongst thousands of pages just 416 pages might be eligible. So I think my lord it is not a big problem. We want speedy trial.

Justice Nizamul Huq adjourned the court by directing the defence to submit their application by 2 pm and that then they will decide the matter.
