Moeen complained that the AL never believed in democracy and wanted to stay in power through harassment, murder and forced disappearances but the people would thwart the ruling party’s effort.
Another member of the Standing Committee of the Real Opposition, Amir Khasru Mahmud Chowdhry, termed the two institutions – the police and the judiciary – as the main obstacles in the party’s ongoing movement to restore democracy.
“The outgoing Chief Justice said yesterday (Thursday) that Bangladesh would be in serious trouble if the judiciary could not be freed from politics. He had said this while leaving, but after coming (taking over as CJ) he was not aware of it. But his message was for all judges and government officials,” said Khasru.
He reminded the judiciary, police and other law enforcers and government officials of the oath they had taken to maintain neutrality.
“The outgoing Chief Justice reminded you of this. You should remember this. If you do not do this, the people of Bangladesh will not leave you,” Khasru warned.
