Lord Carlile was told by the immigration officers at the airport hat his visa was cancelled.
As a member of the lawyers’ panel of Khaleda Zia, House of Lords member Lord Carlile was supposed to hold a press briefing in Delhi Thursday (July 12).
The India administration scrapped the visa as it wasn’t fit for allowing him to enter Delhi, said reports of Indian media.
Lord Carlile earlier vowed to hold a press briefing in Bangladesh. He was neither given a visa nor denied by Bangladesh administration. Therefore, he intended to hold a press briefing in Delhi.
The British lawyer thinks that the cases against Khaleda Zia are fabricated and motivated.
