The High Court gave a legal decision disposing her bail petition in the case after deeply looking into the matter, he says

Law Minister Anisul Huq has said BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia's denial of permission to receive advanced treatment at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) is her unusual attitude.

He, however, said the High Court gave a legal decision disposing of Khaleda's bail petition in the Zia Charitable Trust corruption case after deeply looking into the matter of the BNP chief.

The minister came up with the remarks at a press conference on Khaleda's bail petition at his Gulshan residential office in Dhaka on Thursday, reports UNB.

He said the BSMMU can provide the BNP chairperson with the advanced treatment, but they could not do that as she did not give permission.

"The court said they have nothing to do with the matter as she denied permission [for the treatment]. That is why the petition has been rejected."

He said the BSMMU doctors categorically said they could not initiate the necessary treatment for Khaleda as they were not getting her permission.

"If a person is seriously ill, it is quite natural for her/him to give permission for treatment. We think not giving permission is an unusual matter from her [Khaleda's] side," the minister observed.

As his attention was drawn to BNP leader Ruhul Kabir Rizvi's remark that the government's vindictive policy has exposed through the rejection of Khaleda's bail petition, Anisul said BNP has been making many illogical demands and remarks. 

"I do not think I need to answer to those things."

Earlier in the day, a High Court bench of Justice Obaidul Hassan and Justice AKM Zahirul Hoque turned down the bail petition filed by Khaleda Zia in the corruption case.

In its observation, the court said it is possible for the board to provide treatment to Khaleda Zia. 

"If she wants, the medical board will start the treatment anytime soon. If it is required, the number of the seven-member board could be increased," the court added.

The bench read out the health report of the former prime minister in the morning after Supreme Court registrar general placed before it the medical report submitted by the authorities of BSMMU a day back.

According to the report, Khaleda has been suffering from high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma and arthritis which are under control. Now she is suffering from back pain, but Khaleda did not allow the medical board to provide advanced treatment.
