‘Nobel’ winner Muhammad Yunus sentenced to prison, found guilty of violating labor laws | leader








Leaders Online Desk: Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus has been convicted of violating labor laws in Bangladesh. Politics in the country has heated up due to this. His supporters alleged that the entire operation was politically motivated. Prosecutor Khurshid Alam Khan said Professor Yunus and three of his Rural Telecom colleagues were convicted under the Labor Act and sentenced to six months in jail in the case. But all four have been granted immediate bail pending appeal.

Politics heated up after the punishment

Muhammad Yunus, famous for running a microfinance bank that lifts people out of poverty, has been accused by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina of exploiting the poor. In August, several global figures, including Barack Obama and Ban Ki-moon, criticized the crackdown on Muhammad Yunus. This has once again heated up politics in Bangladesh.

Protest from Obama

In August last year, 160 global personalities, including former US President Barack Obama and former UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon, protested the court action against Yunus. It was also said that there was fear for their safety and freedom.
