It’s his personal issue, says AL

The ruling AL leaders said the resignation of the Chief Justice is absolutely his personal matter. Neither the government nor any quarter has put any pressure on him (CJ) to resign from his office, they claimed.

Talking to The Independent over the issue yesterday, AL presidium member Abdul Matin Khasru said, “It is absolutely his [CJ] personal issue. We didn’t put any pressure on him to quit. Our judiciary is fully independent and judges are too.”


 
Talking over BNP’s claim that the CJ was forced to resign from his office, Khasru, also a former law minister termed the claim as ‘hypothetical’. Actually, the BNP has no issue to do politics and that’s why they are spreading falsehood over the issue to mislead the nation, he added.

“Our government didn’t put any pressure on the Chief Justice to resign from his post. But BNP is doing politics and making hypothetical remarks over the issue,” he added.

Talking to this correspondent AL joint general secretary Abdur Rahman said it is his (CJ) personal issue whether he will remain or quit from his office. “I don’t want to tell anything over the issue,” he added.  Amid various speculations and row over the Supreme Court's 16th amendment verdict, Sinha, now abroad, finally stepped down. President Abdul Hamid received his resignation letter, said his press secretary Joynal Abedin on Saturday. Chief justice Surendra Kumar Sinha went on leave on 3 October on health ground and left for Australia on 13 October and his 39-day leave expired on Friday.
