BNP accuses govt of trying to delay Khaleda’s release

13 Feb,2018



Dhaka, BdChronicle:

BNP senior leader Moudud Ahmed on Monday alleged that there is a deliberate delay in giving Khaleda Zia’s lawyers a certified copy of the lower court verdict against her in a bid to ‘linger’ her release from jail on bail.
  
Speaking at a discussion, he also warned the ruling party that it is losing 10 lakh votes every day for showing an inhuman attitude towards Khaleda Zia.

“We sought a certified copy of the verdict on Thursday to file an appeal. We still haven’t received it. They’re procrastinating over the matter. It seems that they want to cause pain to Begum Zia as much as they can by making a delay in providing the certified copy of the verdict,” the BNP leader said.

Moudud, a BNP standing committee member, said the verdict that convicted Khaleda in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case will not sustain if an appeal is made against it with the apex court.

He said the absence of Khaleda has united their leaders and activists and made the party stronger as they are now committed to ensuring the release of their chairperson from jail through a peaceful movement. “BNP is now more organised, united and stronger than any time in the past.”
