The High Court on Sunday set January 30 for the verdict on two writ petitions that challenged the detention orders of BNP’s senior joint secretary general Tarique Rahman and former prime minister Khaleda Zia’s adviser ASM Hannan Shah.

A High Court bench of Justice Mirza Hossein Haider and Justice Mamnun Rahman fixed the date after completion of hearing in the writ petitions. The joint forces arrested Tarique, also elder son of Khaleda, on March 7, 2007. The government on April 13 ordered detention of Tarique under the Special Powers Act.

The petition for Tarique was filed with the High Court on December 2 when the court ordered the government to explain why the detention order would not be declared illegal. The police arrested Hannan on November 7 last year and the government on November 25 ordered his detention under the SPA. A writ petition challenging the detention order was filed with the High Court on December 2 and the court on the same day asked the government to prove that the detention order was lawful
