Dhaka, Feb 27: Eminent Jurist Kamal Hossain on Tuesday said he would provide legal advice to defence counsel of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia for her bail.“BNP gave me the copy of the judgment. I will go through it first and will give legal advice,” he said.

The senior lawyer, also Gono Forum president, came up with the assertion while talking to media in the evening.

Earlier in the day, a delegation of BNP led by its Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir met Kamal at his chamber in Motijheel area and sought his legal support in Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.

When asked whether he would move to the court for Khaleda, the eminent jurist said he did not go through the judgment.

“I will have to go through the judgment first,” he said without making any further comment in this regard.

Contacted, Gono Forum leader Subrata Chowdhury, who was present in the meeting, said, “Sir (Dr Kamal) told the BNP delegation that he does not deal with criminal case.”
