Our companies have been taken away, we are in dire straits: Dr Yunus

Update : 15 Feb 2024, 18:02

Nobel laureate Dr Muhammad Yunus has alleged that Grameen Bank has forcefully taken over their eight of their companies and is running these at their will. 

At a press conference on Thursday , he said he had sought redress from the police in this regard but did not receive any assistance.  

Professor Yunus said eight offices located in the Grameen Telecom Bhaban were seized by Grameen Bank on 12 February. 

He said ''Since that day, they have locked the building. How would you feel if someone came into your house and locked you out of it? Then what is the use of laws and courts in this country? They don't want to go to court. I have never seen such a disaster in my life." 

The Grameen Telecom Bhaban in Mirpur-1 houses 16 companies of which Dr Yunus is the chairman. Yunus asked how the country was being run in this manner. 

"We are being attacked," he said, adding that the relevant court would be approached in this regard. 

In response to a question, Yunus said the institutions were built with business profit, not through money from Grameen Bank. 

He said the companies were being run according to the law.
