At the briefing, journalist Mushfiqul Fazal asked, “I want to ask about Bangladesh and popular leader of the country, Khaleda Zia. As you know, she was in jail with a fabricated corruption case. And she was released in March 2020. But virtually, she was house arrest. Now she is hospitalized, and her health condition is very critical. And so, I want to know what is your call to Bangladesh authority to ensure her proper treatment as her movement is restricted by the authorities?”
In reply, the spokesperson to the Secretary General said, “I don’t have much to say except, of course, we do hope she receives the proper health treatment and that her health is not put in any danger, as we would say for anyone.”
