Dhaka: Bangabandhu Awami Ainjibi Parishad, an organisation of the pro-Awami League lawyers, will hold protest rallies across the country on August 13, 16 and 17 demanding that the objectionable and irrelevant statements at the observation of 16thamendment’s judgment by the Supreme Court be expunged.
The decision came from a press briefing organised by the Parishad at its Dhanmondi office here on Saturday morning, reports the UNB.
On August 1 last, the Supreme Court released the full text of its verdict upholding the High Court verdict that declared illegal the 16th Amendment to the Constitution establishing Parliament’s authority to remove Supreme Court judges.
