The High Court has ordered Nobel Laureate Dr Muhammad Yunus to surrender before it within November 7 in a case filed over the illegal sacking of employees in Grameen Communications.

The court also asked authorities concerned not to arrest or harass him before this time. 

The bench of Justice Moyeenul Islam Chowdhury and Justice Khandaker Diliruzzaman passed the order on Monday.

On October 9, a lower court issued an arrest warrant against Dr Muhammad Yunus in a case filed over the illegal sacking of three employees of Grameen Communications.

The three employees of Grameen Communications filed three separate cases against its Chairman Dr Yunus, Managing Director Naznin Sultana, and Deputy General Manager Khandaker Abu Abedin.

In the cases, they accused the trio of sacking them illegally for their role in the formation of trade union at their workplace.

The accused were asked to appear before the court on October 8.
