Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Anisul Huq on Sunday said statements given by the BNP leaders on getting the certified copies of graft verdict against their chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia, are not true and fabricated.
"Their statements on the issue are not true and fabricated. They have to see whether we are violating law in this regard," he said.
The minister came up with the observations while talking to newsmen after holding meeting with the UN Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative Mia Seppo at his office at the secretariat.
Replying a question on BNP leader Maudud Ahmed's allegation regarding the certified copies of Khaleda Zia's graft verdict, Anisul said, "He can raise many allegations. He himself doesn't follow law. His allegations don't mean anything."
"We did not get justice for killing of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and most of his family members when Maudud Ahmed was law minister. He did not take any step to revoke Indemnity Ordinance. We saw Bangabandhu's self-proclaimed killer Faruk contesting in the presidential election during his tenure in the government," Anisul added.
The law minister said when the court will provide the certified copies of the verdict that is absolutely matter of the court.
"It will surely provide the certified copies of the verdict when it is ready. But as far as I understand as a lawyer, it takes time to prepare a 632-page verdict," he said.
The minister added during his meeting with UNDP Resident Representative, they discussed matters like anti-discrimination act, digital security act, human rights commission, child rights, domestic violence and witness protection act.-BSS
