Nobel winner Yunus says rights have ‘disappeared’ in Bangladesh

Dhaka (AFP) – Bangladeshi Nobel peace laureate Muhammad Yunus says the right to free expression has ‘kind of disappeared’ for government opponents in his country. Yunus says many believe Bangladesh’s prime mininster Sheikh Hasina views him as a political threat. “She uses government occasions, very official occasions, makes very serious speeches. And in these speeches she calls me a bloodsucker, she calls me all the dirty things that she can come up with,” he says.
