Bangladesh prosecutors strongly opposed a bail request by
Sheikh Hasina in High Court in an extortion case filed by businessman Noor Ali.
Counsel for Awami League President Hasina, barrister Rafique-ul-Huq was
surprised by government’s move and accused the government of playing dubious
role in giving bail to Sheikh Hasina in corruption cases.
Rafique said it jeopardizes the possible dialogue between the two former
premiers. The dialogue is aimed at resolving the political crisis ahead of the
next parliamentary elections.
Sheikh Hasina is presently on parole for treatment abroad.
Matiur Rahman Chowdhury has the details.
