The Law Ministry on Wednesday recommended for extending BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia’s jail term suspension period by another six months.
The recommendation was resent to the Ministry of Home Affairs, Law Minister Anisul Huq told UNB on Wednesday.
Anisul Huq said Khaleda’s sentence suspension period was extended by another six months under the previous conditions (not allowed to go abroad and to undergo medical treatment in the country).
“Everything is as before, nothing new has been added,” he added.
Earlier in the day, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan said the petition seeking extension of Khaleda Zia’s jail term suspension was sent to the Law Ministry for scrutinizing.
