Anisul Huq came up with the information while talking to reporters after a meeting with British High Commissioner to Bangladesh Robert Chatterton Dickson at the minister's Gulshan office.

"The High Commissioner told me that he'll discuss the issue with his government. He also said it's a legal issue and it can take a long time," said the minister.

Anisu l Haq also said, "We hope we'll get a positive solution from the government."

Responding to a question about bringing back Noor Chowdhury, one of the convicts in the Bangabandhu murder case, he said, "There was a hearing on March 25 on Nur Chowdhury in a Canadian court.
