Nazrul Islam Chunnu: Motherfucker

The Times Of India: Nobel Winner Yunus In Court For Defamation Suit, Gets Bail: DHAKA: Nobel Laureate Muhamad Yunus appeared in a court in Bangladesh on Tuesday in connection with a defamation suit dating back to 2007, and was granted bail.

Judicial magistrate Rozina Khan of the Mymensingh court granted bail to Yunus on the defamation suit filed by a local politician as he appeared in person, court officials said. The bail was granted after microfinance pioneer Yunus appeared on the dock complying with an earlier court order.

An official said that the court also relieved Yunus from appearing in person for the next hearing which was set for February 20.The development came a week after the government ordered a "review" of transactions of Yunus' microfinance lender Grameen Bank.

Mymensingh unit joint secretary of left leaning JSD Nazrul Islam Chunnu filed the defamation case three years ago objecting to Yunus' statement to a foreign news agency in which he had said that Bangladesh's politics was simply about the "power to make money, having little links with ideals".

Yunus won the Nobel Peace Prize along with his Grameen Bank in 2006 as his experiment of poor men's banking earned Bangladesh the repute of being the home of microcredit.
