Default What do you think of High courts verdict on the Ershad case.

The Bangladesh high court (bench of judge Faizi) found ershad guilty of misusuing state money and sentenced him to two years in jail.
Given the fact that 2 of such cases were withdrawn from the govt. when Ershad wanted to join the 4 party alliance(then govt.) and now the timing of the verdict when he wants to join the 14 party alliance is really fishy.
Given this verdict and the last debacle in the supreme court has our judicial system lost some credibility?
What are your thoughts.

The question is, is it a new case or an old one brought back? It's Ershad after all, I'd be surprised if he really didn't do anything.

Its an old case.
his lawyer wanted the case to have the hearing after he came back from the haj, but the judge did not allow that. HE also came up with the verdict on the same day of the hearing. To be short it was done hurriedly yesterday given that this appeal was launched in 1995 or 1997

It was however predictable. Ershad still remains a child in the world of BD politics. He did not learn his lessons and never will. he repeatedley said in september that this time he would stck to his commitments but yet again he paid the price for betryal.

Ershad is a sly opportunist, but this time he missed it. I doubt whether he joined 14 party or 40 party, it would make any positive difference except strengthen a coalition of corruption.

but why does the judicial system have to impose such a political verdict.
I agree with what you guys think of Ershad, but is it fair for the judicial branch of the government to lose credibility because of political reasons.(like the one today and the one a few days back)?

No it's not fair, and it's not fair at all. It's not fair for Ershad to stand inside a Mosque and lie either. So kata diye kata uthaise...fair game in that sense.

Ershad is a person, but this is the judiciary system we are talking about. it is a much bigger institution than a person.

need to look deeper into this matter. What was the necessity behind producing the verdict so hastily, especially for a case thats been in process for such a long time ? and it should be a legitimate concern that there is some relation to this verdict and having Earshad join the 4 party coalition, where his initial intention was to join the 14-party. But then again the sentence of 2-year in jail rules him out of any possibility to stand in the coming election.

It's been claimed that BD politics now run through remote controls. Isnt that a fair claim ?
