Obaidul: Khaleda must follow court procedure to secure release

Update : 30 Apr 2018, 10:31 PM
Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Monday said BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia has no way to secure her release from jail without following court procedure. The minister made the remark while speaking to reporters after attending a function at a city hotel. Referring to allegations from BNP leaders that the government has a conspiracy to confine Khaleda Zia to jail until the next parliamentary polls, Obaidul said it was not the government who sent the BNP chairperson to jail, as she was imprisoned by the court for her conviction in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case. Amid claims from BNP that Khaleda Zia was ill and her health was deteriorating in jail, the Awami League general secretary said physicians of the medical board were doing everything necessary to provide treatment and there is no negligence in this regard. He added that BNP leaders were using the allegations over Khaleda Zia’s treatment as a political maneuver.
