10 Oct 2012: Defence lawyers office raided

At the beginning of the tribunal, the defense lawyer Abdur Razzaq told the tribunal that yesterday plain cloth police from the Detective Branch raided the law chamber of Mizanul Islam and Tajul Islam. They have collected names, addresses and phone numbers of the staff of the law chamber which created fear among every one. It appears that the police want to harass the defence counsels and his assistants. It has been reported in some newspapers today.

A summarised version of the exchange is below:
Chairman: What can we do?

Razzaq: We are bringing this to the notice of the Tribunal.

Chairman: Tajul Islam is a senior advocate. He knows how to take legal steps.

Razzaq:  This law chamber is used by all the defence counsels.

Chairman: Ok, we have heard it.

The tribunal then moved to the cross examination of the 12th defense witness
