‘Victims would certainly file case against WB’
Staff Correspondent:Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday said the persons affected by the World Bank's decision on refusing finance to the Padma bridge project and subsequent lawsuit in Canadian Court would file case against the bank.
“Effected persons would certainly file case against the World Bank as attempted to involve them in a direly false case,” the prime minister said in response to the demand of the expatriate leaders and workers of European Awami League in Germany.
“We are thankful to the Almighty as the persons affected by the World Bank's decision have finally got justice after a long suffering. They tried to implicate my son and daughter, sister, my cabinet members, advisors and secretaries with the fictitious allegation,” she said.
“However, I will say a person can face any difficult situation if he/she remains in the path of truth and honesty,” the prime minister said.
“The verdict of the Canadian court went in favour of us as all members of my family and I myself were in the path of truth and honesty,” she said.
The prime minister reached Germany yesterday to attend 53th Munich Security Conference at the invitation of the German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali, president and general secretary of European Awami League Anil Dasgupta and MA Gani Chowdhry, president of German Awami League Bashirul Alam Sabu, EU Awami League leaders Idris Farazi, Hasan Iqbal and Nurul Islam were present among others in the event.
