BNP: Unfreeze Khaleda’s bank accounts

Update : 08 Apr 2014, 09:27 PM

The BNP yesterday demanded that party Chairperson Khaleda Zia’s bank accounts be reopened immediately alleging that those were frozen unjustly.

“In 2007, the then caretaker government frozen bank accounts of both Khaleda Zia and Sheikh Hasina. But Sheikh Hasina’s accounts were unfrozen in 2008 and she is operating her accounts.

Nazrul Islam Khan, standing committee member of the party, said this while addressing a press briefing at party’s Nayapaltan headquarters: “We strongly demand the immediate unfreezing of her bank accounts.”

The government evicted Khaleda Zia from her cantonment residence with a political vengeance, he said.

Nazrul said Khaleda Zia has eight bank accounts and among those there is no money in six bank accounts.

The BNP leader alleged Khaledaa Zia’s bank accounts have remained frozen for long seven years.

“From the prime minister to ministers and ruling party leaders are making derogatory remarks on Khaleda Zia which is unfortunate. I have no word to condemn the ruling party leaders’ false and dirty comments on Khaleda Zia’s personal life.”
