Law Minister Anisul Huq said that BNP should submit an application to the home ministry to take Khaleda Zia abroad for treatment.
Responding to a question of journalists on Khaleda Zia’s going abroad on Saturday morning at Akhaura in Brahmanbaria Anisul Huq said, “I have’nt received any application regarding Khaleda Zia’s going abroad. They should submit an application to the Home Ministry, then it will ask for Law Ministry’s opinion. A decision will be reached upon their formal submission.”
The law minister added, “Khaleda Zia continues to receive quality healthcare at Evercare Hospital despite her prison sentence, courtesy of the benevolence of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina,”
Regarding BNP’s threat of hartal, blockade, the minister said that if they break the law, the law will take its own course. Earlier on September 18, the Security Services Division under the Home Ministry issued a notification extending the suspension of Khaleda’s jail term by another six months.
