The decision regarding Khaleda Zia's treatment abroad is on Sunday
Law Minister Anisul Haque said that the Law Ministry's decision regarding BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia's treatment abroad will be taken on Sunday (October 1).
Anisul Haque told reporters on Saturday (September 30).
Khaleda Zia's younger brother Shamim Iskandar applied to the Ministry of Home Affairs last Monday (September 25) seeking permanent release and treatment abroad.
The Law Minister said that due to Eid–e- Miladunnabi office was closed on Thursday and Friday was a public holiday. I will not hold back on this matter. Opinion will be given tomorrow.
Earlier, in response to questions from reporters at the secretariat, the law minister said that the government has nothing more to do from the existing position of law regarding sending Khaleda Zia abroad for better treatment. She was granted conditional discharge under section 401 (1) of the Code of Criminal Procedure with a conditional suspension of her sentence. It is the greatness of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. Now if there is any change in the law, then the conditional release given to Khaleda Zia must be canceled first. After canceling and going back to previous status, another consideration can be given.
Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan said in this context that Khaleda Zia was convicted in several cases and was in jail. The prime minister's executive orders gave her the opportunity to take treatment from home. Khaleda Zia's brother applied. There are legal complications in this regard, so I have sent it to the Ministry of Law. Whatever is within the law will be done. I am not allowed to do anything outside the law.
Khaleda Zia's brother Shamim Iskandar wrote to the government on September 25 to send her out of the country for treatment. The Home Minister gave this information to the media on Thursday (September 28) afternoon.
It is to be noted that the three-time former prime minister has been undergoing treatment at the capital's Evercare Hospital since August 9. There is no improvement in her health. Rather, the situation is deteriorating day by day. Sometimes she has shortness of breath. To be taken in the Coronary Care Unit (CCU). She was shifted from the cabin to the CCU yesterday afternoon as well. She was taken to CCU three times.
