Grameen Bank founder Dr Muhammad Yunus has been granted bail in a court case filed by the Dhaka City Corporation (DCC) alleging that an adulterant was found in yogurt produced by Grameen Danone Foods Ltd.
Yogurt Adulteration – Grameen Danone
Yunus is the chairman of Grameen Danone Foods, a sister concern of Grameen Bank. The latest development came about nine days after a court in northern Bangladesh granted him bail following his personal appearance on a defamation suit filed in 2007 by a local Bangladeshi politician.
Speaking to the media after receiving the bail Dr Yunus, told reporters “The court summoned me. I appeared before it and appealed for bail. The court granted me bail. I’ve got justice.” His lawyer, Sara Hossain, said: “Dr Yunus is not directly connected with Shakti Doi , although it is a sister organisation of Grameen Bank.”
