Fakhrul calls Obaidul over Khaleda's parole


Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Friday said that BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has phoned him to talk about Khaleda Zia's release on Parole.

"Mirza Fakhrul called me and on behalf of his party, sought Khaleda Zia's release on parole. He also sought Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's intervention in this regard," he said.

Obaidul Quader, also the Road Transport and Bridges Minister informed this at a press conference at AL President Sheikh Hasina's political office in city’s Dhanmondi area in the morning.

"Khaleda Zia has been jailed in a corruption case, not in a political case. The government can consider if it was a political one. It is completely under the court's jurisdiction," he said.

The minister also said that BNP and Khaleda Zia's relatives have been verbally demanding her relase. "But, did not submit any writen appeal to the Home Minister and Law Minister in this regard," he added.
