Cnews: Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has requested her Canadian counterpart Justin Trudeau to extradite Noor Chowdhury, a convicted killer of her father Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
Noor Chowdhury has been residing in Canada for long. Bangladesh has been requesting the Canadian government to send him back.
The prime minister reiterated her call for the extradition of Chowdhury at the Sunday meeting with Trudeau at Chateau Forntenac hotel in Quebec, where Hasina was staying.
Following the meeting, PM's Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim told reporters, “The prime minister told her Canadian counterpart that Noor Chowdhury, the self-confessed murderer of the Father of the Nation, is staying in Canada. He was convicted under the law of Bangladesh.”
“Trudeau said I understand your pain. He is not a Canadian citizen and he has no status here.”
Trudeau discussed the issue with his colleagues as the Canadian law does not allow death penalty, Karim said.
Hasina flew to Canada on Friday and addressed the G7 outreach session on Saturday.
