Joy: WB fabricated evidence
Reacting to the dismissal of the Padma Bridge bribery conspiracy case, Joy wrote on his official Facebook page: “The World Bank came up with this plot against my mother, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s government in an attempt to discredit her.” He quoted the Canadian court’s statment that the evidence was based on ‘gossip and rumour,’ and suggested that since the court found no evidence of corruption in the project and dismissed all charges, the evidence must have been fabricated by the World Bank. He alleged that Hillary Clinton had instructed The World Bank to pull out the funding from the project due to persistent requests of Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus, thereby hindering the largest infrastructure project in Bangladesh.
‘I myself was contacted several times during that episode by US State Department officials conveying threats from Hillary Clinton against our Government if we did not back off Yunus’
“I myself was contacted several times during that episode by US State Department officials conveying threats from Hillary Clinton against our Government if we did not back off Yunus,” he wrote.

Joy stated: “Because of him, the World Bank attempted to stop the largest infrastructure project in Bangladesh that would benefit tens of millions of people and transform our south western region. Yunus deliberately tried to hurt Bangladesh using a foreign power.”

Sajeeb Wazed Joy statement on WB case His outrage extended beyond the parties he holds guilty, and he spoke out against those who stood against the prime minister and the government. “It is also shameful that a section of our so called civil society immediately took sides against our country in favour of the World Bank. Those people who took sides against Bangladesh are unpatriotic. Indeed they owe Bangladesh an apology,” he stated.
