Foreign Secretary Masud Bin Momen has said relations between Bangladesh and the United States would not be affected by an issue involving an individual.

“It’s not normal for an issue involving an individual to have an impact on the state-to-state relations,” he said while responding to a question on a Dhaka labour court’s verdict against Nobel Laureate Prof Muhammad Yunus on Monday.

 

The foreign secretary said it (verdict) has been reached through a legal process, and Prof Yunus has the scope to appeal against the verdict.

“He has also been granted bail. So it is an ongoing legal process,” Masud Momen said.

 

Earlier, the Dhaka court that sentenced Nobel laureate Dr Muhammad Yunus and three top officials of Grameen Telecom to six months’ jail in a case over violation of labor law granted them conditional bail.

Dhaka 3rd Labor Court Judge Sheikh Merina Sultana pronounced the judgment.

 

Dr Yunus’ lawyer Barrister Abdullah Al Mamun said the court granted bail to all for one month as they intend to appeal against the verdict.
