Presswatch Report: US President Joe Biden and State Department Face Lawsuit by Dr. Md Rabbi Alam.
In a significant turn of events, the President of the United States, Joe Biden, along with the State Department, has been served with a lawsuit by Dr. Md Rabbi Alam, citing alleged unconstitutional and unjust reasons aimed at obstructing economic development, undermining social status, and demanding the imposition and revocation of visa policies. Secretary of State Antony Blinken has also been named as a defendant in this consequential case.
The lawsuit was filed in the Detroit Eastern District of Michigan, USA Court by three prominent political and business figures. Among them is Dr. Rabbi Alam, known as Mr. Alam, a Bangladeshi-origin United States citizen. Dr. Alam holds the esteemed positions of President of the United States Bangabandhu Parishad and Chairman of the Bangabandhu Commission. The other plaintiffs include Rizvi Alam, the General Secretary of Spain Awami League, and the International Affairs Secretary of the Bangabandhu Commission, who was formerly an organizing secretary of the Chaelig Dhaka University branch and a well-established businessman in the Madrid area of Spain. The third plaintiff is Shere Alam Rasu, the Dean of the Bangabandhu Commission of the United States of Missouri and the former President of Bangladesh Agricultural University.
Dr. Rabbi Alam informed Presswatch that the necessary legal documents, writ, and judicial proceedings were conducted online on June 16. However, the case was officially docketed on Monday, June 26, under Section No. Federal 465. The case bears the identification number 5:23-cv-11523 and is titled “Alam, et al v. Biden, et al.” The presiding judge is Justice Judith E. Levy, with Judge Elizabeth A. Stafford serving as the magistrate.
Dr. Alam further revealed that the filed case has been accepted, and summons will be issued to the defendants in due course. Additionally, he disclosed that another case is scheduled for July 4, where six Republican congressmen will face accusations of levying false allegations against Bangladesh prior to the imposition of the visa policy.
The developments surrounding this lawsuit have attracted significant attention, and the outcome of these legal proceedings will undoubtedly have far-reaching implications for the relationship between the United States and Bangladesh. Presswatch will continue to closely monitor the situation and provide updates as the case progresses.
