Bangladesh, Canada agree to find out way for Noor Chowdhury's extradition
Bangladesh and Canada have agreed to find out a way for the extradition of Noor Chowdhury, the self-confessed killer of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman now living in Canada, through discussions. Both countries reached the consensus during a bilateral meeting between Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and her Canadian counterpart Justin Trudeau at Hyatt Regency Montreal on Friday. Foreign Secretary Md Shahidul Huq and Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim briefed reporters after the talks. The foreign secretary said the officials of the two countries will sit across the table and find out a way for the extradition of Noor Chowdhury, a death sentence convict in the Bangabandhu murder case, from Canada. "The aim of the discussion will be to bring Noor Chowdhury to justice and execute the verdict of the Bangabandhu killing case," he said. Shahidul said the government had been trying in many ways to bring back Noor Chowdhury from Canada, and the discussion between the officials between the two countries about his extradition will open up a new door in this regard. About militancy, he said the two leaders described the menace as a 'global problem', and they decided to solve it through united efforts. The foreign secretary said the Canadian Prime Minister highly appreciated Bangladesh's anti-militancy stance and ongoing movement against militancy and terrorism. He said the two prime ministers also discussed other issues like boosting trade and investment and export of garment products. Sheikh Hasina invited Justin Trudeau to visit Bangladesh and the Canadian Prime Minister cordially accepted the invitation, Huq said. In this connection, the incumbent Canadian prime minister recalled his visit to Bangladesh along with his father Pierre Elliott Trudeau, the then PM, at the age of 12. Trudeau told Sheikh Hasina that he would visit Bangladesh soon as he has some hazy memories about her visit to Bangladesh that took place 1983. The foreign secretary said the visit of an elected Bangladeshi prime minister took place in Canada for the first time after a span of 30 years. "The tour has opened up a new horizon in terms of bilateral relations between Bangladesh and Canada," he added.
