DHAKA, July 17: Bangladesh’s attorney general has stepped down, saying he was unable to work with “dignity and integrity” under the country’s interim army-backed government.
Fida M Kamal was appointed to his post soon after the caretaker government came to power and imposed a state of emergency in January 2007.
But the London-trained barrister walked away from the post late on Wednesday after a five-hour meeting with government officials, including the country’s justice minister.
“I am sorry I could not continue,” Kamal told reporters after the meeting.
“It has been difficult for me under these circumstances to work with dignity and integrity,” he said, without elaborating.—AFP
