Arrest warrant issued against Dr Yunus
A labourer court in Dhaka has issued arrest warrant against Grameen Bank founder and also Nobel laureate Dr Muhammad Yunus in three cases filed against him for sacking of three employees of Grameen Communications, the IT wing of the bank.
Dhaka 3rd Labour Court Chairman Rohibul Islam issued the warrant today as the noted social entrepreneur and economist failed to appear before it.
Earlier, the court asked Dr Yunus and two others to appear before it today, as three former employees of Grameen Communications filed three criminal cases against them.
The two others accused are Managing Director Naznin Sultana and Deputy General Manager Khandaker Abu Abedin.
The cases were filed for transferring the employees as part of harassment, issuing threats, and subsequently sacking for forming trade union.
Abdus Salam, Shah Alam and Emranul, junior MIS officers of Grameen Communications, were sacked last month for their role in formation of trade union at their workplace
