The High Court (HC) on Tuesday fixed today to hold hearing on a rule issued regarding banning the publication and broadcasting of BNP acting chairman Tarique Rahman's speech in media.

A High Court division bench comprising Justice Md Khasruzzaman and Justice Md Khairul Alam set the date.

Advocate Qamrul Islam, Sanzida Khanom and Nasrin Siddiqa Lina took part in hearing for a writ petition filed in this regard, while Additional Attorney General SM Munir and Deputy Attorney General Bipul Baghmar stood for the state.

The High Court on August 13 had ordered to correct the addresses of Tarique Rahman and send its notice regarding the rule on those addresses.

Advocate Nasrin Siddiqa Lina on January 6, 2015, filed the writ, pleading for court's instructions to take necessary measures not to publish, broadcast, screen and reproduce any statement of Tarique Rahman in any newspaper, electronic media, social media or any other electronic device or media, as he is a fugitive convict.

The High Court on January 7, 2015, issued the interim rule over banning the publication and broadcasting of Tarique Rahman's speech in media.
