Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has expressed deep grief over the death of Barrister Rafiqul Haque, a senior Supreme Court lawyer.

In a condolence message, Sheikh Hasina said Barrister Rafiqul Haque used to give various suggestions on important constitutional issues of the country. She said that in 2007 the then caretaker government arrested her in a false case. At that difficult time, Barrister Rafiqul Haque came forward in the legal battle to get her released from prison. Sheikh Hasina recalled that with deep gratitude.

The Prime Minister prayed for the salvation of the departed soul of the deceased and conveyed his deepest condolences to the bereaved family members.

Rafiq-ul Haq, a senior Supreme Court lawyer and former Attorney General, died at 8:30 a.m. Saturday (October 24) (Inna-Lillahi wa Inna Ilahi Raziun). He was 85 years old at the time of his death.

It is learnt that Barrister Rafiq-ul Haq had been suffering from various old age complications for a long time. He was admitted to Ad-Din Hospital in Moghbazar on October 15. At that time his corona was examined. However, the report was negative. But as his physical condition deteriorated, he was taken to life support. He died this morning.
