 In a talk held on web platform with Diplomatic Correspondents Association, Bangladesh, British High Commissioner Robert Chatterton Dickson yesterday said British government will have no objection to issue visa to BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia for her treatment in the United Kingdom, reports newagebd.net. Replying to a question, he said, “There would be no objection if she wants visa as her close family members are living in the UK. The decision would be for the ministers, who would take into account factors,” reports observerbd.com.
 On September 3, the government suspended sentences of former prime minister Khaleda Zia in two cases for six more months on conditions that she would not go abroad.
The Law Minister Anisul Huq had said”Her sentences have been suspended for six more months from September 25 on the previous condition that she would take treatment from home and would not go abroad.”
Khaleda is now facing 37 cases, 33 of which were filed by the ruling Awami League government.
She was granted interim bails in all but two cases related to Zia Orphanage Trust and Zia Charitable Trust.
Khaleda’s eldest son Tarique Rahman and his family live in London since 2008.
