General Elections; and subsequent detention after the N.R.C Army coup; the dangerous part he played in the overthrow of the Military junta; his appointment as a Cabinet Minister in 1968; his political contributions as Group of 77 Spokesmanduring the Debate for the Restoration of the Legitimate Rights of Beijing China, as Chairman of the Security Council at the birth of Bangladesh, and as Legal Spokesman of S.W.A.P.O.
