  • Khaleda won't go to court

    Determined to skip today's hearing on 'security grounds'; cops yet to get arrest order

    Khaleda won't go to court

    Despite two arrest warrants hanging over her head, Khaleda Zia has decided not to surrender before the court to seek bail today, drawing public attention on government actions regarding her arrest. A special court in Dhaka, which ordered last week to arrest the BNP chairperson in two graft cases, resumes proceedings of the cases today. Party sources close to Khaleda said she was determined not to leave her Gulshan office where she has been staying for two months. She would not surrender before the court “come what may,” they added. If she came out of her office to go to the court, BNP leaders fear, the government might not allow her to return to the office and might forcibly send her to her residence. "She will not go to the court tomorrow [today] on security grounds," Sanaullah Mia, one of her counsels, told The Daily Star yesterday. Supreme...

FBI team likely to arrive this week

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) officials are likely to visit Dhaka this week to help in the Avijit murder investigation, according to a senior police official. A day after the fatal attack on writer-blogger Avijit Roy, a Bangladeshi-born American citizen, the US Department of State said Washington was ready to assist the investigation, if sought. Dhaka later decided to seek FBI's assistance. Meanwhile, Avijit's wife Rafida Ahmed Bonya, who sustained critical injuries in the attack, was flown back to US last...

The central bank yesterday warned the chief executives of non-bank financial institutions not to act irresponsibly and indulge in irregularities. “We have observed that some NBFIs still indulge in irregularities despite our caution. We are investigating those allegations and if any NBFI is found guilty of wrongdoing, we will take tough action against it and its CEO,” Bangladesh Bank Governor Atiur Rahman said at a quarterly meeting with the CEOs at the central bank headquarters. Rahman reminded the CEOs that the central bank has already removed a chairman, some directors and a chief executive of an NBFI for their wrongdoings. Another CEO has also been fined for giving wrong information to the central...

     Op-ed

FRUIT and vegetable growers, given their limited staying power with perishables, are among the hardest-hit in the economy .The  blockade and shut-downs over a long period have put the farmers in double jeopardy. In the first place, gluts of   perishable  produces have been left to wither in the fields  or just dumped to rot. As it is, the farmers have had to resort to distress sales of whatever they could manage to dispose of locally. In addition to the blow, the supply chain disruptions have jabbed at the growers and consumers alike; they are now having to deal with a new phenomenon of exploitation. The wholesalers, taking advantage of higher transport costs,...
