EU hails Khaleda release

EU hails Khaleda release

The European Union (EU) yesterday welcomed the release of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) Chairperson Khaleda Zia and hoped that she would get necessary medical treatment now. “With her health having severely deteriorated during her two years of imprisonment, we hope that Begum Khaleda Zia will now receive necessary medical treatment,” according to a EU press release posted on its website yesterday.

It also said the EU, including through its Special Representative for Human Rights, Eamon Gilmore, had consistently called for her release. “The European Union reiterates its strong support to democracy, the rule of law, the promotion of human rights and the independence of judiciary in Bangladesh,” reads the press release.

On the other hand, the EU has also expressed its commitment to support Bangladesh during this evolving situation of the outbreak of coronavirus in the country. “The European Union stands ready to support Bangladesh as it deals with the challenges of the coronavirus outbreak,” it said.

The Bangladesh government on March 25 through an executive order released the BNP chairperson for six months on conditions that she would stay at her home in the capital and would not leave the country during this time.

The government released her as per section 401 (1) of the Criminal Code of Procedure (CrPC).
