Arrest warrant issued against Dr Yunus

Arrest warrant issued against Dr Yunus

A labour court yesterday (Wednesday) issued warrant to arrest Nobel laureate Dr Muhammad Yunus as he failed to appear for a scheduled hearing over sacking of three employees of an ICT company which he heads as its chairman. “Dhaka 3rd Labour Court chairman Rohibul Islam issued the warrant as he (Yunus) failed to appear as the hearing was scheduled today,” court clerk Nuruzzaman said.

Nuruzzaman said Yunus was asked to appear along with Grameen Communications’ Managing Director Naznin Sultana and Deputy General Manager Khandaker Abu Abedin over sacking of those employees for forming union at their workplace.

The two others, however, were present at the court while all of them were summoned on July 10 this year while the court granted them bail accepting their pleas.

Grameen Communications, however, does not have any link with Grameen Bank. “We filed three cases challenging our sacking from the company for forming union at our workplace,” one of the complainants Abdus Salam told newsmen.

Another of the complainant Emranul Haque alleged the three employees were first transferred elsewhere, exposing them to intimidation and eventually they were terminated from the service for their attempts to float the trade union. The two along with Shah Alam were sacked in June, 2019.
