Padma Bridge Conspiracy: HC to hear rules to find those involved

A rule hearing on the question of setting up a commission to find out the conspirators behind the creation of a false story of corruption over the Padma Bridge construction deal is set for a hearing on Monday.

The High Court bench of Justice Nazrul Islam Talukdar and Justice Kazi Md Izarul Haque Akand fixed the date for Sunday.

Deputy Attorney General AKM Amin Uddin Manik presented the rule for hearing before the court.

On February 15, 2017, the High Court issued a rule asking why a commission of inquiry should not be directed to find out the real conspirators behind the Padma Bridge construction agreement and the creation of false stories of corruption and why the culprits should not be brought to justice.

The rule asks the cabinet, home, law and communications secretaries and the ACC chairman to respond.

The High Court passed the order on February 14, 2017, following a report in a national daily titled 'Yunus demands justice: Awami League and like-minded parties unite'.
