Whole world is watching this trial: Yunus 

Update : 04 Mar 2024, 10:11

Nobel Laureate Prof Muhammad Yunus on Sunday said the whole world has their eyes on the trial of a case filed against him.

He said this while speaking to journalists near the Metropolitan Sessions Judge's Court in Old Dhaka after getting bail in the case filed over the misappropriation of about Tk 25.22 crore of Grameen Telecom Workers' Profit Participation Fund.

Prof Yunus, also chairman of Grameen Telecom, said, "This allegation of embezzlement against a Nobel laureate is a historic event.

"Today's photo is historic. The ACC and we are at 'Bottola' [court premises]. It will be a witness to history…. I am not alone, there are seven others who've worked hard all their lives for the poor…. Even they are accused of embezzlement and money laundering. It will be an important picture."

He added that It's important because laws are written for the good of the people. Laws bring peace and comfort to the people. But law also causes anxiety and fear....  The ACC sat for a trial today, you [the people] decide whether it had done it for the right reason...

"The whole world is watching what is happening in this trial. Whatever we are doing, they are watching every detail."
