Process on to extend Khaleda’s conditional release: Home Minister
Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan today said the process to extend the suspension of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia's jail sentence in two graft cases is underway.
"We received an application and it was sent to the law ministry following the procedure, and now process is underway as per the law ministry's opinion," he said while speaking at the Secretariat.
On September 12, Law Minister Anisul Huq said BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia must return to jail for submitting a new application to seek permission to go abroad for treatment.
Meanwhile, Khaleda's family recently submitted an application to the home ministry seeking further extension of her conditional release and permission to allow her to go abroad for receiving advanced treatment.
The home ministry sent the application to the law ministry a few days back seeking its legal opinion.
The law ministry gave its opinion on September 7 and sent it back to the home ministry which is supposed to be sent to the Prime Minister's Office for approval.
