The BNP-led-18-party opposition alliance enforced a continuous 60-hour countrywide hartal from 6:00 am on 4 November 2013 until 6 November,2013. The attorneys did not show up in court due to severe security concerns arising from the hartal. Consequentially, Tribunal 2 was not in session on these days.
This marked the opposition’s second long hartal after the Eid vacation. These interruptions have been significantly affecting the proceedings of the Tribunal.
