Law will move on its own pace, Anisul says on Khaleda’s treatment abroad

Law Minister Anisul Huq on Friday said that law will move at its own pace and humanity cannot be earned through movements.

The minister made the remark on BNP’s demand to send its chairperson Khaleda Zia abroad for treatment at a charity program held by Akhaura municipality Awami League.

He said, “The prime minister in March last year asked me to look into the matter. Due to her interest Khaleda Zia is now living at her residence after her punishment was suspended.”

He said there is no restriction for her to take treatment in the hospital in Dhaka.

“We are also looking into the demand of BNP to send her abroad”, he said.

But there is no scope to give two different decisions for the appeal, he said.

The minister also recalled Khaleda’s behavior towards the Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in different times.

He said, “When Khaleda’s son died, the prime minister went to her house to offer condolences but the gate was closed over her face.”

Meanwhile, in another programme of Upazila Awami League at Kasba , the minister said, “BNP does not have the power to do politics with the people but it has the power to sabotage.”

He told members of AL at Kasba that Awami League should be strong organisationally. “You have to be ready from now on to prevent BNP’s sabotage.”
