The High Court on Sunday ruled that the two children of Bangladeshi-born US citizen Imran Sharif and Japanese mother Nakano Erico will stay with their father.
Mother Eriko can exclusively meet the daughters, aged 11 and 10, three times a year for 10 days at a time and Imran will bear her travel and accommodation expenses, said the court.
The HC bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman delivered the ruling until a writ petition by the mother is fully disposed.
If Eriko wants to meet her children beyond the court-prescribed time she has do it at her own expenses, the court said.
Imran Sharif was also instructed to allow the children to talk to their mother in video calls twice a month on holidays.
Following the writ petition, the High Court also ordered Imran Sharif to give Tk 10 lakh to Eriko for the expenses she incurred to travel to Dhaka and stay here within seven days.
