Khaleda Zia's legal notice to 5 including Home Secretary

Khaleda Zia's lawyer Barrister Kaiser Kamal sent legal notice to 5 people, including the Home Secretary, for not allowing Khaleda Zia to sign her bail.

It is said in the notice, if Khaleda Zia is not allowed to sign the Okalatnama in the next 48 hours, appropriate legal action will be taken against them.

On Tuesday (July 9) Khaleda's lawyer Barrister Kaisal Kamal sent this notice to the Registry.

The notice was sent to the Home Secretary, Dhaka Deputy Commissioner, Police Chief, IG Prison and Superintendent of Keraniganj Central Jail.

Barrister Kaiser Kamal told reporters, ‘Begum Zia has been in jail for a long time. He is being deprived of legal rights repeatedly. He is not allowed to sign the Okalatnama. Which falls within the rights of a prisoner. This is his legal right, constitutional right.’

He said, ‘We can not get the call records to Khaleda Zia. Repeatedly. But I can not get the signature of the Okalatnama. For this reason, he is being interrupted due to his previous action. Therefore, legal notice has been sent for 48 hours.’
