CHATTOGRAM, Oct 26 (BSS): Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud today said the court will decide whether BNP Chief Begum Khaleda Zia would be allowed to go abroad for treatment, it is not a matter for the government to decide.
"If Khaleda Zia wants to go abroad for treatment, she needs to get a bail first and then permission from the court. So, it is the matter of court not the government," he said.
Hasan, also Awami League (AL) publicity and publication secretary, said this while talking to journalists at his city residence at Dewanji Pukurpar here.
Noting that BNP leader Rizvi Ahmed on Friday at a press conference said that Khaleda Zia has not been provided with treatment, the minister said the statements of BNP leaders and Khaleda's relatives about her treatment are identical.
Actually they are trying to gain sympathy for Khaleda through their statements, but, in reality, they are humiliating Begum Zia, he said, adding the allegation of Begum Zia's relatives after visiting her that doctors had not been seeing her for two weeks is not correct.
