○BNP doesn't seek permission, only informs authorities: Fakhrul

【Thakurgaon】BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on November 26 said his party does not seek permission to hold meetings but just informs the authorities.
 The BNP secretary general said permission is required from Public Works Department (PWD) to hold meetings at Suhrawardy Udyan and from the police to do that on any street.
 "The government comes up with one excuse or another for giving permission and gives its consent at the last minute. Then it becomes very difficult to successfully hold any meeting," he said.

○SC set Dec 5 to deliver its order on Khaleda's bail

【Dhaka】The Supreme Court Appellate Division set December 5 to deliver its order on BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia's bail over the corruption case of Zia Charitable Trust. The Court also asked the medical board formed to treat BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia to submit a health report before the court on December 5.
 A special court, on October 29 last year, jailed the BNP chief and three others for seven years in the corruption case. They were accused of abusing power in raising funds for the trust from unknown sources. The trust was named after the husband of Khaleda Zia, former President, Ziaur Rahman. President Zia was assassinated in 1981. The former Prime Minister Khaleda Zia has a"bitter" rivalry with the incumbent Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
