‘We’re pursuing legal recourse’
Bangladesh is pursuing legal recourse in the US for the repatriation of Rashed Chowdhury, the fugitive convicted assassin of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, said Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen.
"It is in the legal process. We're pursuing it. But the legal process is a time-consuming matter in the US," he said, responding to a question at a press briefing in New York on Tuesday.
"(But) we are hopeful (of bringing back Rashed Chowdhury to Bangladesh). Our belief is that we'll be able to bring back the person to the country after completing the legal process," he added.
He said Bangladesh had earlier brought another killer back to the country from the US.
