Why dialogue then: Begum Zia`s lawyer

BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia`s lawyer Sanaullah Mia said that ill Begum Zia cannot walk properly. Yet she was taken to prison. On one hand, the dialogue is going on, on the other hand, ill Khaleda is taken into prison. Then what`s the need for dialogue?

Khaleda Zia`s lawyer Sanaullah Mia told reporters after the hearing of Niko corruption case in the afternoon. Today, Khaleda Zia was brought from the hospital in the hearing. Later, she was taken back to jail.

Today BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia was taken from the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) Hospital to the old Dhaka central jail at Nazimuddin Road after the hearing. At around 11:30 pm, the convoy carrying Begum Zia left BSMMU premises.

On October 4, the High Court directed to admit Begum Zia at BSMMU and formed a five-member medical board for her treatment. On October 6, Begum Zia was taken to BSMMU from prison.

Meanwhile, the government`s dialogue with Jatiya Oikya Front was going on since the first day of this month. Already the government has been in talks with Oikya Front twice. BNP, one of the main partners of Oikya Front, demanded the release of Begum Zia in the dialogue. In the meantime, she was taken from the hospital to jail today.

At noon, BSMMU director Brigadier General Abdullah-Al-Harun said that Khaleda Zia`s physical condition is stable enough and that is why she got the clearance from the hospital. She will be treated in prison. BSMMU director also told the media that if needed and if the prison authorities want, then Begum Zia will be re-treated at BSMMU.
