BNP has expressed grave concern as British lawmaker Lord Alexander Carlile, also a legal consultant to the party’s imprisoned Chairperson Khaleda Zia, was denied entry into India.
“We think the incident contradicts the democratic spirit of India,” BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said in a press statement today.
Lord Alexander Carlile, a top level British lawyer, landed at the New Delhi Airport last night but the Indian authority did not allow him to enter the country for not having an appropriate visa for his intended purpose.
“This is shocking,” Fakhrul said, adding that the globally renowned lawyer wanted to come to Bangladesh for extending legal aid to Khaleda Zia but failed.
Carlile previously wanted to raise his voice against the motivated imprisonment of Khaleda Zia by holding a press conference in New Delhi but he was denied permission for that too.
